    Hi all I am brand new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I just got a used 15" MacBook Pro from 2006 with the Intel processer and its running Snow Leopard. I am very excited to finally have a Mac as I have been wanting one for the longest time. I hope to learn alot through the forums and have some fun.

    Congratulations! I know you are so excited to finally ditch that Windows PC! You will find this to be one of the best decisions you have ever made.

    Thanks for the welcome and for the links. I will still be keeping my PC for the time being. Since the budget is tight I am looking for a used iMac desktop to hold me over untill I can buy a new one. I really would like to learn how to program and write apps but first I really need to learn the ins and outs of the Mac.
