I have a pismo and they work real well, if you do not use them you  
will most likely get key mars from oil and dirt on your hands. They  
also give you a screen cleaner and a taste of there liquid cleaner. I  
just use a damp paper towel rub lightly.

I would bet the store would have the ability to bargain better for  
newbies to apple, sorta give them the apple bite in the
neck and you need an Apple forever and only a silver bullet from  
Intel Chip will cure but wait....

It's there now

OS X the tiger addition for all the basics but over all, I have found  
just working with the machine is great. The GUI is much more  
intuitive and flows well. The help section is very good on basics and  
will really do a lot for you, if you follow it. Find a few sites were  
newbies are treated well. This is a pretty good one. The Apple boards  
especially late at night,  get some real good posts and answers. Just  
keep the beast underneath asleep, if you want to learn how it works,  
well UNIX is for you. I would use the OS X tiger book and wait for  
awhile and then decide where you need to get a little more  
understanding, that way you can narrow the need and the cash down.  
Their really starting to  get this going.
Have fun, I am sure you will enjoy it for many years to come.
