    hey i now got a macbook, first time user.
    and well i heard someone say something that u can wave your hand in front of the IR sensor and it automatically switches from mac os x to windows when u download the parallels program?? is this true, if so how do i do that?

    also i heard you can transform your desktop to look like a cube? how do you do that?

    MacBooks don't have IR sensors in them....

    I'm not sure what you mean by the second thing...

    The sensor is for the Front Row remote.

    You can use VirtueDesktops to allow switching from OSX to Windows by hitting your computer (gently). If you had a Macbook Pro, you could wave your hand next to the keyboard where the light sensor is.
