Of course, there will be times where you’ll be asked to provide an overall project estimate. You may get this wrong, underestimate the time you’ll need to spend on it and end up putting in a few unbillable hours. That’s OK, just so long as it doesn’t become a habit!

The biggest difference between a Mac and a Windows based PC is the operating system. For a person that has never used a computer before, the Mac OSX would most likely be easier than Windows to learn.

Macs also do have a better security measures than Windows xp and earlier versions since the default user account does not have admin rights, but they are not impossible to hack either.
A CD writer and DVD-ROM drive is usually sold as a combination. You can do it to rip your favorite music files from your CDs, write new files on a CD, and play DVD movies.
