In Pictures: 10 things every new Mac user should know

Your guide to a short and painless learning curve.

Just quit already Unlike a PC, where you click the X in the right corner of your screen to close a program, the Mac's left-sided red dot only closes the window, leaving the application still running. In order to avoid using precious memory, when you want to quit an application, look for the bolded text in the menu bar with the application name. Click the name and then click Quit; alternatively, a quick ⌘Command-Q will also do the trick, as will right-clicking on the icon at the bottom of the screen and selecting Quit.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
