Notice the 'Light hearted chat'.........
Thought it may be useful to pass on tips for newbie Mac users.
For example....the first time you turn it on and have to follow the onscreen instructions it asks for your e-mail address...don't do what I did and spend 10 mins looking for the '@' symbol on the keyboard ..its moved.
Its on the number 2 key......

Always wear clothes underneath otherwise you may get mistaken for a flasher in high winds
When changing system settings - don't bother to look for an "apply" or "ok" button to make the change active. It's active already.
Stuart's talking from personal experience again!
Also don't do what Cathy did and spend the first fifteen minutes talking to herself on what she optimistically called the Apple Self Skype facility which she only then later realised was her reflection in the glossy screen.
Its my inner budgie......
Also......turn ON the flipping firewall.
System Preferences >Security and privacy > Firewall...unlock the lock and turn on> on the Advanced tab click Automatically allow signed software and Enable Stealth Mode....lock.

It was never proven
It does not have drive letters.
⌘ Cmd replaces Ctrl, Option instead of Alt and on the Mac, the backspace key is called Delete. The Delete key deletes from right to left, just like the backspace key.
The keyboard tends to respond a little faster if you wear a black turtle-neck jumper.

That buggers me up still - especially as the Mac keyboard does have a Ctrl key too. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts and it's a hard habit to break. Especially as I also run windows on the Mac (I'm sorry bt I have to)
On a similar vein: Press Fn and Delete to delete left to right (just like the delete key on a windows machine)
You can set your iTunes music as your screen saver.
Apple>System Preference>Desktop and screen saver> Screen Saver> iTunes artwork..........when the screen saver is being used to cancel it tap the space bar.
You can add your signature to your PDF documents.
Open PDF> click Annotaions Tool bar> Signature>Create Signature from Face Time Camera........write your signature on paper, hold it up level to the camera and it will take a snapshot ......to add your signature to the PDF just click and drag to enlarge and its done.
