I am the CTO for our company and after a long battle with windows based systems I have finally decided to give Apple a try. I will be ordering a 17" widescreen Macbook Pro on Monday. The only upgrade will be the 200gig HDD. It has been over 15 years since I have had any kind of Apple computer (I worked for Motorola at the time) and I am looking forward to seeing the new advances in both the OS and hardware. Wish me luck! P.S. Anything you would recommend that a windows convert do when I first start using the Macbook?
