The big day arrives

Hi Folks,
I am taking delivery of my first Mac today, and to mark the occassion here I am!

After many years of Windows machines, I've taken the plunge and I'm nervous but looking forward to learning; No doubt many questions to come over the next days, weeks and months..

Regards
Martin
