however, being a complete mac noob and having all my asian friends crowding around their cheap windows, i have no clue how to run this thing. i don't know many of the shortcuts and special features of the mac that weren't previously avaliable on my pc. i was wondering if any of the mac users here could leave some helpful tips and some new features that I could check out on my macbook. this seems kind of general and stuff but i really want some feedback from tl users because i usually see alot of cool stuff in the tech threads around here. thanks.
p.s. i'm trying to get windows on this thing (using bootcamp? someone recommended parallels to me) but i'm kind of worried. im planning on downloading a windows xp cd and finding a cdkey online and hoping itll work for bootcamp... are there any risks (aside form the fact im being completely illegal..will it fuck up my mac if it somehow fails) and complications that may occur while i try to install?
