    Try as I might, I cannot save a document, or anything to m y external hard drive that I plug into my MacBook Pro. Its my hard drvie, its NOT write protected, and I backed up all my PC files there so as to "Move to a mac" This mac will be useless if I cannot figure this out... what a pain.
    It tells me that when I try to save it the hard drive is full or write protected, neither of which is true.... what could be the problem here?

    I can't believe also there was no resident paint type program with the mac, and that you can't have tabs always open on Safari.

    Also, I hate the way everything dissapears off my screen and I have to search through all the icons on the doc to find what I am looking for.... I really miss the start button with all my programs there for browsing... some things are definitly clunkier on the MAC....

    Anyway, can anyone help me?
