Mac OS x noob...

Guys,
I have just converted from using Windows to Macs. I am now a very proud owner of the PB with SD and 1 GB ram, and it is the very first Mac I have ever used. Just one question... Is there any good websites on the net for first time OS x usage as that would really get me in the swing of things and help me navigate OS x quicker (not saying os x is hard to use, just want to know some poweruser tips etc).
Would be most appreciated for any info...
thanks
the Apple noob...

here is good occasionally, and really good if you have problems.
www.resexcellence.com has info about modding X (and 9)

That's all I can think of right now. Other people may know more.

MAc OSX "The Missing Manual" by O'Reilly Press is a great book to get you started...it has power user stuff and all kinds of intermidate and beginner stuff in it...a great book to have when starting out.
