    Hi,
    I am about to purchase my first ever Mac going with a MBA 13"/8/128g. I am totally new to Mac. Have an iPhone and iPad so am familiar with iOs.

    I will be purchasing the MBA and then go overseas for 5 weeks. (here in Australia you get the tax refunded at the airport - so I am getting a 9% discount)


    What are my training options to learn using my Mac? Is it over the phone or can I go in store? I'm not interested in paying for 1on1, but if you think thats worth it let me know.
    Does buying a new mac which I will get online from apple as I want the 8gig ram, entitle me to some sort of free training?

    I am pretty IT savy as I work in that field already, so don't think I need handholding for that long.
    Any manuals out there I can leverage. I enjoy learning as much as I can about a device so that I can get the most out of it.

    Thanks. Gets to show that it must be easy to learn. Now just gotta go and shop for the MBA. Yay
