    in addition, you could always head on down to http://www.macuser.org.sg to check the forum out.

    asking qns on the forum is equivalent to attending a community course, as answers come fast and furious.

    there is an upcoming meeting this 22nd sept at MI@funan. showcasing the new imac and a photography talk too!

    Its really easy to use... Just switched to OS X from Windows myself and was a little lost initially but everything is pretty simple to pick up.
    Worse comes to worst, the 'help' is one of the best i've ever seen.

    If you sit with a Mac for a couple of hours, you should be able to pick up most of the OS without any formal lessons. If you want to do more complicated stuff, then it's a different story.
