This thread is for anyone who owns a Mac computer. Anything from an eMac to a Mac Pro. Please don't post if you have a Apple display (doesn't count as a computer) this is only for Mac computer owners.
Also now excepting iOS devices!
This thread is going to be used for any basic help with macs and also just some FAQs about Mac and OSX.
