Hard cider?

Well, our 3 year old XP machine is going nuts, and I need it badly for our trucking company. So a buddy of mine has been telling me to get a MAC for years. OK...I got it.... WTF! This thing is so different I don't know what to do with it. Its gonna be a long nit trying to re-learn the computer. Atleast @ DiscountPowerParts.com I have my PC.

mac's are easy

you'll find that your new mac is really user friendly, they don't get viruses and tend to fix themselves.
what problems are you having with it?

Is there a MAC store near you? They offer free classes.
What problems are you having?
Which operating system do you have, Tiger or Leopard?
I switched from pc to mac 3 years ago.
I was a little lost at first, but you will find that the pop up blocker actually works, the calendar is simple, and safari is a pretty good browser.
If you need to run office type programs you can find micro soft office 2004 on lime wire.

Noooooo! Don't buy anything Microsoft! Get OpenOffice for your Mac.
OpenOffice is free, it's open source, and you'll never be forced to upgrade!
Bill Gates is the anti-Christ! If you hadn't already gone to the Mac, I'd
recommend you install Linux. You never have to upgrade your hardware
to run Linux, like you have to with Windows.

Good luck!
