Mac Book Pro

I recently purchased a Mac Book Pro to do work on the road and at home.  I have to say I have no idea how to do anything.  The simplist of tasks now seem impossible.  Sketchup textures dont work I cant figure out how to load lumion, unzip anything etc.

So... How do I load Lumion on a Mac???  I have a million different files, and when i click them they just duplicate??  I really want to learn Macs... but im starting to think they really are just a pain in the a**

You ventured to the dark side...  ;)

Got ATI card?  |:(

I really cannot help you as I also once bought a Mac, it's now my BIG iPod (useless for anything else as most soft I use is incompatible)  :-\

You need to buy a Windows 7 license and use Bootcamp to create a Windows partition on the harddrive (It's fortunately very easy to do). After installing Windows, press the ALT key when you turn on the MacBook to choose which OS to load. Then install Lumion on the Windows partition.

The question is which MacBook Pro you opted for - the 13" or the 15" version?

They ship with very different graphics cards, and only the 15" version will let you work with slightly more demanding scenes.

Pete, dark side is right... Its about to go in the dark corner of the closet.

Morten, I got the 15" and upgraded to 8G.  It seems to be really fast... I just cant figure out were anything is or how to do anything... When do I have time to go to Apple classes (which I also paid for......)

a mac laptop with a intel cpu is a PC- Laptop.
They use the same hardware. No magic involved.
