    I am planning to buy Macbook pro with retina display, and it will be my first mac experience but I am concern on some points:

    1- I have hard disk which has data and it run on windows (NTFS) what is the best solution to make it run on both systems?
    2- I am an Android user, I tried once to connect my Samsung S3 on Mac before but it didn’t connect, why?
    3- How to make Boot disk USB
    4- What is the best software to run windows OS on Mac (parallels)

    1. Are you planning on sharing it between to or just need to transfer to Mac? I transferred mine over wifi. I tried Firewire and that was a mess.

    2. Why do you need to connect your Android phone? If it's just for music syncing check out doubletwist. There's also SpanningSync and The Missing Sync for syncing calendar and address books and the such. Both work pretty good but not as nice as native syncing with iOS/iCloud.

    3. Yeah, follow that earlier link. I've done it but don't remember. I think you just point the installation to the USB disk, depends on what you need it for.

    4. Bootcamp.
