    Hey guys

    Just got my first mac...MacBook Pro 15"

    Macbook Pro i7 2.2
    Glossy screen
    4GB ram
    750 Sata

    Should be a fun drive :)

    Any advice or any guidance ill need coming from windows?

    I may install Parallels or do a dual boot windows 7 64 bit not sure just yet.

    Also I had a 3 monitor setup on my latitude E4300, docked wondering if there is any solution for that on a macbook down the line.

    Thanks
    Musclez

    The multi-monitor setup actually may be possible now with this new Thunderbolt port, although I'm not sure of the details on it.

    Welcome. Im new to the mac platform also, even after a few weeks of use i am still trying to get my head around it. For some things it's so much better and for others windows edges it. I dont understand people that slag off either to be honest they both have good and bad points. Overall however i do prefer mac os, it just feels better if you know what i mean, clean and uncluttered. And it's true what they say, virus on a pc is a nightmare but the mac just doesnt seem to have the same problem. Mac in my opinion has always been the snobbish side of computing but over the past 2-3 years is becomming more mainstream and i think it's for the better. I'm looking forward to the new mac os as it's very ios orientated but i have no doubt long term mac lovers may not be so impressed?:apple::)

    Yeah, you need to come up with a new guide or something, otherwise we run out of guides to quote. What about a guide on how to search? Or a guide on how to employ common sense? Or a guide about ... shiny things.

    A guide on how to search for threads discussing the daily asked questions would be great.

    welcome to the apple world. :apple:

    I'm new to it too - just converted myself 3 weeks ago - and i'm loving it.

    Unfortunatelly I need to work on a PC with Win Vista (not even the Win7 :()and it is really strange. In just 3 weeks and I do press all the time Alt+T (i.o. Command+T for opening a new tab on Safari/Firefox) or Alt+C/Alt+V (i.o. Command+C/+V) for Copy/Paste haha

    That's a bit annoying but i can't change my company's standard so i need to live with that :(
