Hi everyone, after 25 years of PC products, and a terrible windows 8, I decided to switch to Mac. My plan is to buy a MacBook Pro 15 when they launch the new Haswells. I still need Windows to use Visual Studio so plan to use bootcamp with Win 7. Here are my questions.... Trackpads are great but certain things I like to use a mouse. Do I need to buy an Apple mouse or do the same Logitech mouse that I use for PC work on Macs as well? MacBook Pros don't really have the space that I am use to. What kind of external drives can I buy that are cheap? I don't really know what kind of Apps Macs use. Can you recommend some must have Apps. For duel boot, I assume I will need to set up a partition. I will most likely be using Win7, Visual Studio the full package, and probably Microsoft Office 365. The files I create, and need to save, for these programs are usually relatively small. How big of a partition do you think I will need to make? Any hotkey recommendations... like I can use ctrl-c to copy and ctrl-v to paste in windows. What are some of the keyboard functions. I can see some, what to me are some strange symbols on the keyboard. Maybe you can point me to a chart of what each key does or something? Thanks for your help. I have browsed this community for a few days and you all seem kind and helpful. Some forums are full of egotistical jerks. I appreciate all of you.
