WOW! I did it. Got a macbook and it’s a completely different experience from Windows. Been futzing with it for 2 days now and kinda sorta know the basics. The one thing I haven’t figured out is how to type using be pe me fe. Anyone care to explain how to get the “language bar” up and running? I’ve been combing through the Mac 101 sight and haven’t come across it yet.
Re: my external hard drive panic… I was able to get all my files onto my mac without any problems. They all work etc… just can’t save anything from my Mac to it now. But the guys at Apple said they would re-format it for me so it works on a PC and my mac. Went to the huge (new?) Apple store on Bade Section 1. VERY busy but a very nice staff and 3 out of 4 of the sales guys spoke English very well.
