I've been a windows user all my life. I have a few friends who have powerbooks and they've let me play around with them a little, but nothing to extensively. It was really neat. I've become more drawn toward macs more and more and have wanted to get one for a long time, because everyone I've listened to loves their mac. When the mac mini's came out, I was planning on getting one cause I wanted to hop on the mac bandwagon and see what it was all about. However, lately, I've discovered that my major (graphic design) requires that I have an ibook or a powerbook. However, even though I have played with a few mac's, I've never really "used" one (ie: installing programs, setting up stuff, changing options, ect...) 1) Are there any websites that show how this is done and how different it is from using a windows machine? 2) I was customizing a 12" powerbook, and I notice that it comes with the Airport Extreme Card. Does it also include bluetooth, or do you need to get that d-link adapter? 3) Do you mac users ever find it fustrating that a majority of the software only works on a windows system, or are you generally satisfied with the software that is already available through apple and others (quicken, microsoft office, adobe, ect...)? 4) HONESTLY: Is the mac os X as stable as everyone says it is? I've seen Linux freeze up, and during the macworld keynote, Job's mac froze (granted it was an unreleased version of tiger), but does it ever happen, even if it isn't the OS itself that crashes, maybe the application that you are using, and if it does, is it a big deal? 5) How hard is it to totally screw up your mac? Windows is pretty much idiot proof, but being a mac noob, I don't want to do any kind of irreversable damage. Speaking of, if you do screw up your mac, is there any way to recover it? (like in windows you can reformat and reinstall windows) 6) Is there any kind of maintenance that you have to preform? (such as defragmenting, downloading updates, ect...) That's all the questions I have for now. I'm sure that I'll think of some more. Thanks guys.
