    Hey guys I am hopefully soon going to buy a Macbook. Coming out of the Windows world, I rarely know my way around OS X. And so I saw this magazine-lookin-book named The Mac Book. It explains many helpful tips and tricks specially for those new Mac users. It is 258 pages long so there is plenty of details! It retails at $29.99 and I found mine at Costco. It focuses on Leopard, iLife'08 and also iWork'08.

    Na believe me mac OS X is pretty straightforward, even though i am an advanced user i learned just by playing around with it, since my school is all mac

    Having just bought a new iMac myself, I've gotta say they are the best!

    Not that I've had much of a chance to play with it (working pretty long days at the moment) but it's great. I think once I really get stuck in and learn all the little intricacies and such I'll be hooked.

    When I first bought my mac, it wasnt that hard to change to mac. You just have to remember when closing windows, the close buttons are on the left not the right

    And ctrl on windows acts as command on mac.
    For example (ctrl+c= windows, command+c=mac)
    good luck
