Allo all!
After many, many years of wishing upon a star, I finally got a Mac! 15" MacBook Pro - yowza!

I'm still just getting my feet wet and trying to learn all the cool features, but so far I'm very impressed! It's so funny - one of the things that added to the "golly gee" factor for me was the Stickies app: so simple and yet it made me think "how cool, how thoughtful!"

Anyhow, I'm at work so I should probably get down to it - happily on my Mac!

You will be pleasantly surprised by all of the thoughtfulness put into the Mac and Mac OS X. It really is the little details that make the Mac what it is.

Welcome aboard!

If you like stickies, you'll positively giggle with glee when you start playing with F-9, F-10, and F-11.

[edit: to do so on your laptop keyboard, you'll need to use the fn key on the bottom left]

Hey tr, long time no hear from!

Congrats on your MBP. I wore out my first gen MBP already and get my new, updated MBP tomorrow.

Welcome to the MBP club.

Thanks all!!

Now if only I could figure out a way to make the shortcut keys work in Photoshop CS3, I'd be happy!

tr got a Mac? Say what?!?

Running Leopard yet?

Side question about the shortcuts, you're using the command key instead of the control key?

Stickies have been a great feature since what was it OS 6? Certainly since the mid 90s.:D

Aha! Thanks to your suggestion of the fn key, my Photoshop action shortcuts are now working! Thanks so much!
