    If you mean the other plug adapter – the one with the long cable, rather than the plug that just slots straight into the power brick – then all that does is give you a bit of extra length on your power cable. It makes no difference to charging or usage which one you elect to use.

    The mag safe is the one you use for charging your laptop.

    Looks like this: [​IMG]

    As for setting up, just turn it on, answer the questions (IE. What language, register, and so on.) and then enjoy! Just know iTunes, and iPhoto both start up with a couple questions about setting up. Nothing crazy. It's very simple!

    I guess you mean the "Dock".

    Just drag the icon of your choice over the dock.

    Indeed – but you can only add apps to the left hand side of the Dock. The right hand side is reserved for stuff like documents and folders.

    Congratulations on your first Mac! You're going to love it. The transition is pretty easy, but when you run into questions, keep em' coming and we'll be glad to help you out.

    What do the icons look like? Do they look like disk drives? If so, right click and hit eject.
