Well after building a $3000 PC 5 months ago I had a "hindsight is 20/20" moment, now I've sold my PC (for $1200, what great resale! haha) so this week I'm ordering a macbook dual 2.0 with a gig of RAM (I'll upgrade to the 2Gb later). So now I have many questions as a total mac newbie, I'd really appreciate any answers that I can get. 1. I have moved all my files to my portable hard drive that's in 3 partitions, will my mac be able to read all these files? Does mac use a different file format? 2. How do you partition a drive in a mac? Is it worth doing on a laptop? 3. Is there anyone here that has used a macbook to multitrack record? how were the results? 4. What's the battery life like on the 2.0 13" macbook? That's all I can think of right now, I'm sure I'll have many more when I get the laptop in hand.
