Maybe you guys can post things that are important for me to get. Like maybe tell me where to get aim or is ichat that same thing. So anything will be helpful for a beginner like me.

    Congrats & Welcome!

    I'm a new mac user myself. I got a MBP last year and am enjoying it. If you're looking for a chat program, I really like Adium. Adium supports all IM formats. Google it and you'll find it. You can use ichat (compatible with AIM) but Adium is much better.

    Another cool tool I use is istat menu. The nice thing about macs is the ability to see into their inner workings...

    So when i open a safari window the window only takes up like the middle of the screen and when I press the green expand button on the top left corner it doesn't really expand it. Do I have to maximize the window in a different way or is this how it is.

    Hellz, just drag your cursor to the bottom right and expand to full screen if you like.
