    After waiting for what seemed like forever, my first blackbook arrived at my doorstep! I have been playing with it for about an hour, and love it! Any reccomendations on what to do with it first or cool apps for it? Ive been a windows user my entire life, and I can already see that this will be a pretty big learning curve for me. But I am ready to step up to the challenge! :D:apple:

    Thanks! I am so glad everyone is so welcoming on this board! Question though, is there a good website for a mac "rookie" to learn more about the features of the macbook? Apple.com is not that much help.

    Try Mac help - you mac comes sort of pre-armed with info.

    Welcome aboard.
