First of all – yay!  I love Macs!  That is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think you need anti-virus software though.  I have been on a Mac for several years and we also use them where I work and we don’t have any anti-virus software.  There are very few virus’ that Macs can get because their programming is not open for anyone to find like Windows software is.

You can probably change your screen resolution to make the font larger.  That will be under the Apple in the top left corner, under Preferences, then Display.

Have fun with your new toy!

Yep – in the Safari window, you can either go Command-T or File -> New Tab.  For a new window you can use Command-N or File -> New Window.  Let me know if you have other questions as you go along ๐Ÿ™‚

Yay for Macs! I switched about 4 years ago and I’m never going back. Rest assured you’ll figure everything out, it just takes awhile to adjust (at least for me it did). Awesome present!

Yeah it’s a little tricky to get used to at first because the interface is quite different than Windows, which most people are familiar with.  But once you have the hang of it, it is so user friendly!  I don’t think I will be going back to Windows any time soon.  I am a big fan of Macs.

YAY for MACS! lol I doubt I can ever go back to a pc. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I agree to disagree on the whole debate, but seriously my mac is my baby & I’m so excited for you. It does take a bit to get used to, but once you do, its super easy!

Welcome to the Mac universe! It’s awesome. And I agree with PPs on the anti-virus – we have 3 mac computers in our household. They have been functioning for between 3 – 8 years and we’ve never installed anti-virus software. And we’ve never ever had problems.

Have fun playing with it!!

YIPPEE! i’m also a Mac user.

Anti-virus, I woudn’t bother on a Mac.

You can adjust the font size no problem. That is not a Mac issue per se.
