    I got my mac yesterday, and I´m really happy with it.
    I was thinking about adding a standard account for day-to-day use for security reasons, but before I do that I have a question.

    -There is a checkbox under the standard account I created in the accounts menu that says: "Allow user to administrate the computer"
    What does that mean exactly? Am I giving it full administration rights?

    That checkbox is the difference between a standard account and an admin account.
