Hi Adrian,

Many thanks. Mine is a 13 inch screen so doesn't fit your description of a large screen one!

Thanks for the heads up about the virtual track pad, that sounds very useful.

Hi Mel:
You'll do just fine by being pacient and listening to what voiceover has to say. as in IOS there are plenty of hintsand prompts. If it's a macbook of any sort you getting then look online to see how to turn on the burtual track pad. that way you can use the same gestures as on your ios devices to navigate.

If yours is the large screen mac book that was nicked from our school over this weekend then can we have it back please.

Hi All,

I hope to be getting a Mac today and have done very little preparation in terms of finding out how to get started with it.

Does anyone have any recommendations of any good articles or podcasts that are a must? Also, if I turn it on and turn on Voiceover, will I be able to get far or do I need to do more preparation? Any help gratefully received!

Mel
