Just got a MAC for the first time. Got an imac with 1 g memory and 250 hard drive. I also got Microsoft Office. (and and ipod, which is very cool! )Everything else just the standard equipment. I have never used a mac before, so please go easy on me and explain things in very plain English....no assuming I know ANYTHING! How in the world do I copy and paste? I am definately used to the highlight and right click thing. This simple task has me confounded. I love the mail thingy on the bottom that tells me how many messages I have, BUT how do I get them on a routine basis. I checked my mail and Zero new messages. I even clicked get mail, but nothing. Then a couple of minutes later I had 8 messages dated at various times. Why don't they load as they are received? Will I always have to accept the suggested auto filled in email address when sending a message? I'm used to typing one letter and being on my way if the first suggested was the address i wanted. I LOVED how easy it was to plug in cords and be ready to go. Big difference there! Kids love the photo feature and garage band.
