1: interacting with objects can take some time to get used to.

2: Don't expect it to be easy at first, it's not a pc and in some
situations won't behave like a windows pc, persist.

3: the trackpad is your friend at first, turn it on and use it.

Good luck!

Subject: [BCAB] Mac migration

I'm about to take delivery of a MacBook pro running lion with a view to
migrating full time. I'll be checking out online resources but would
like to know what people who've made the move would say are the three
most  important things I should know up front which are different
between mac and pcs from a blind point of view?
