    Ok, so here's the deal: My parents are buying me a Macbook Pro for school (15.4", 2.0GHz, 1GB RAM (1 x 1GB) ), but the thing is, I have no idea how long I'll have to wait. I've never used OS X in any real capacity, (Used a friend's for like 30 minutes), so I'm asking the question: How do I pass the time? What are some good things I should learn about Mac OS X before I jump on the Apple-Train? Thanks in advance guys and gals.

    Use Windows ME on a 486 while you wait, and then it'll feel even better when you get the new system...

    agreed.

    though, upon seeing the NEW Alien Quadrilogy, I feel cheated.

    See they originally had all the discs in one of those unfold, and unfold, and unfold type setups. So to get to a disc, you had like 3 feet of DVD case on your lap.

    now they each come in a slim DVD case....

    sigh, progress.

    I'm running 95 on a 700MHz AMD Duron CPU right now, with like 128 MB RAM, and a 4GB HD.



    Thanks guys, is there anything I need to do with it, when I get it, to make it safe, or keep bad things from happening to it? Like, virus-software, etc.
