Help me love my MacBook!

Many of you know, after years of being a PC user, I made the switch to a MacBook.  Many of you promised it would, of all things, change my life.

So far I can say, I like it.  Apple has made its latest MacBook so PC-user friendly.  The track pad can be set up so it works just like a PC laptop.  There’s Word and Excel.  I like the Final Cut Pro that hubby installed for me.  I like iMovie and I can’t wait to see how Garage Band works.   But I have to admit, I don’t LOVE it.  I don’t love that the email program isn’t Word-oriented so it doesn’t automatically capitalize my first word in a sentence.  I don’t like how iPhoto organizes my photos.  I’m still trying to get used to how and where to save things.  But the most frustrating aspects of my MacBook, my contacts didn’t transfer over well.  I even tried the Thunderbird route but still everything is out of place.  I also can’t find all my calendar events.

So maybe you can help.  Do you know how I can properly transfer my contacts so they show up in the right format?  Do you know how I can get my appointments onto my MacBook’s calendar?

Help me love my MacBook… Please!
