    I will be spending major time on my new mac just playing, however, I do need to do some work too....so my questions:

    with the p.c. I used microsoft office pro, what is the mac equivalent? I used word and excell predominantly.

    I found where my applications are, is there a mac for dummies link that will explain what the various applications are and what there for....for example what is the Applescript application?

    I apologise if these are super stupid/newbie ?'s.

    The Mac equivalent of Microsoft Office Pro is Microsoft Office.

    There are a bunch of Mac for Dummies books but your probably don't need to buy them. Most of the applications there are self explanatory and if you don't know what they are for you probably don't need them anyway.

    Applescript is a sort of coding program where you can set up a "workflow" and have it automatically execute a bunch of actions in other programs.

    The major programs are explained on Apples support pages and if you have any other questions just ask here. Here is also a good place to look.
