    I bought a MacBook a few days ago and I've been wondering about a few things...

    1. Is it possible to get the "Macintosh HD" icon off the desktop? I'd like my desktop to be spotless with no icons, just the dock.

    2. I should put the computer in sleep mode instead of shutting it down right? The only time I'm planning on shutting it down is when I'm gonna be away from it for a few days. Is that what I should do?

    3. My old computer was a PC, and I set up my iPhone through that. Can I transfer it over to my Mac now? I already have all the songs transfered, do I need to do anything else? Sorry if that made no sense haha.

    Thanks for any help guys!!!

    3. Your PC has a backup of your iPhone on it. Just sync your iPhone with your PC then sync with you Mac. It should make another backup on your Mac. Keep in mind that it backs everything up except your Music.
