    Congratulations! I made the switch 3 months ago, one of the best decisions I've ever made! I love my MBP to death, plus it is an incredibly beautiful machine. I can just sit here and look at its voluptuous curves. :p

    Congratulations on the MBP and welcome both to the world of Apple and this forum. You'll love the MBP, and feel free to ask questions. I have found the forum to be welcoming, supportive and very helpful on Mac questions. In addition, don't expect to know everything at once, rather, give yourself time to adapt to the differences (small but real) between the world of Mac and that of Windows. I'm a recent switcher - I got my MBP in April as a birthday present to myself after many months contemplating the switch - and I must say that it is a beautiful machine. Good luck; cheers.
