    Disk repair
    Changed touchpad / other settings
    Checked SSD's manufacture = samsung
    inverted scrolling direction
    Calibrated screen
    Changed Dock icons
    Software updated
    Downloaded Chrome
    Registered my mac air
    Downloaded Flip4mac

    Questions:

    How do i check how much warranty i have left?
    Is chrome compatible with os lion to its fullest potential
    How do i change my wallpaper?
    How do i go on about using an external drive? and which one is the best / most portable one?

    True

    But being a kinda helpful guy....

    Go to the little apple symbol in the top left corner of your screen....

    From there you will find details of RAM CPU and then.....click on moire info.

    The serial number will be displayed and then you can register online!

    Enjoy your mac!

    I've been a new Mac user for only 2 mos. I'm so glad I switched. It was difficult acclimating the first few weeks, but got through the frustrations with the help of this forum.

    Anyway, a lot of your questions can be resolved by going to "System Preferences".

    Flip4Mac really isn't that great or useful anymore. You're better off just using VLC, it will play about anything you can throw at it.

    Also, if you are using chrome you don't need Flash Player installed on your Mac. Chrome has its own version built in.

    Yes.
    It will not scratch it if you clean it regularly.

    sleeve - Be.ez from Apple Store

    speck case - I'd say no if you're getting a sleeve

    an Air in its natural state is a tactile thing of beauty, as well as being pleasing to the eye - whereas a plastic case is, well, plastic
