Hi, My names Mike currently working as an IT analyst but am also going back to University in september to finished my degree in Multimedia and Internet Technology. I got my 13" Macbook Pro in April maybe just before for my birthday with the intension of taking it to Uni with me as it is portable etc and will do everything i require it to do. Anyway needless to say i am extremely happy with the Mac although i do not feel i am getting the most from this (let me explain). At the moment i just use the mac for web browsing and chatting to friends facebook etc but i feel like this was too much money to spend on a laptop to do this although i do use the laptop for some photoshop work i also feel i have spent too much and want to get more from the Mac in order for the purchase of it to feel worthwhile if this makes sense. i'd always wanted one and am pleased i got it but theres a few things i want to do. Firstly i would like to put Windows 7 on this using boot camp i dont know if any of you guys here have done this but if you have i would be extreamley happy if you could give me some guidance. Also one of the things i am having difficulty with is saving a word file to an external drive every time i do this it says that the disc is full or write protected which it is not, does it have to be formatted to a certain format? Also one quick last question is it best to shut down the Mac all the time or just close the lid so it goes into sleep. Also if you guys want to recommend doing anything with the Mac then please feel free to do so i just dont feel like i am getting my use from it at the moment and would like to get more from it. I am an apple lover i have this Macbook Pro as well as an iPad 32gb 3G and an iPhone 4 all of which i enjoy being a gadget geek Anyway thanks for your input guys!
