Just wanted everyone to know I have joined the Mac family. My MacBook arrived yesterday and I messed around with it last night. I am fresh out of college and teaching high school and have used a PC all my life and my school also uses PC's. But I am looking forward to the "newness" of the Mac and hopefully our school will switch (which I've heard rumors) b/c I'm tired of PC's. I debated switching because I do most of my notes on Word or PowerPoint but one of our computer techs said she just got a MacBook and everything should work fine. Also, I've been looking over this site and found numerous things like NeoOffice that I will download for home use. (I probably won't ever bring my MacBook to school though because of theft issues). The few questions I have are these: Can I transfer files from my PC to my MacBook? (saw some threads that mentioned external HD's, which I do not have) How come all my windows say I have 55 GB free when I ordered an 80 GB HD? Where'd the other 25 GB go???? I'd appreciate the help and if there are any other teachers out there, I'll take some advice on programs to get. Thanks!
