    After using iPad 2 and iPhone 4 for more than a year, really love it. I am a computer idiot. So I believe apple products are designed for me. (no offense to other apple users)

    Now I have replaced my DELL XPS with a Macbook Pro 15". Its really a shock to me. I don't even know how to download a file or install new applications.

    Can someone tell me if there is any tutorial for new macbook users?? I really don't want to install windows in my MacBook pro. Please help!!

    First, there's a really good detailed instructions booklet included with every MacBook Pro. Helped me out a lot :)
    Second, if you search around on the interwebs you'll find a lot of guides. Use Safari.
    Last resort: Mac OS X for Dummies do exist. But I highly doubt you'll need that, it's already easy enough to use. ;)

    Small tip: Tap to click is disabled by default, kind of annoyed me when I first used it. If you want to enable it, go to System Preferences then Trackpad.

    I had the same problem when i switched to Mac 2 years ago. Once I get used to it... you just don't want to go back... enjoy

    Its a pretty big transition. I recently made the switch from Windows and it took me a good month to start feeling comfortable with it. The good news is that you can find instructions for just about anything on OSX with Google. Saved my but a few times.
