hi all ! thanks to the very useful suggestions given so patiently on this forum i not only bought the MBP 13 inch basic, but also managed to get a very nice deal on it ! since this is my first time with mac OS, you can guess that the queries are now going to shift. so quickly - -should i format the HDD into 2 or 3 partitions like i used to with windows? as you know well we normally make these partitions to make sure that data is protected in case there is a HDD crash. -should i go for openoffice.org or does neo-office work better? -any special caution that i need to exercise with macs? thanks!
