I had a Gateway laptop running Vista whose motherboard burned out so I figured I'd switch given the new 13" MBP and university student pricing.
I haven't had very much trouble switching, I've been doing alot of exploring and trial-error stuff. A problem I've come across, however, involves some .wmv files I transferred over from my old hard drive (I put it in an enclosure)
I have downloaded flip4mac and the files are viewable in Quicklook but when I try to just double-click view them I receive a message telling me that the file is not a movie file.
Mac Pro Dual 2.8 Quad (2nd gen), 14G Ram, Two DVD-RW Drives, OS X 10.8.3
2006 Mac Book Pro 2.16 (first Gen) OS X 10.7.4
2TB Time Capsule, 2 TB
32G iPhone 4S Black, iPad (3rd Gen) 32G Black
I have heard that Quicktime Pro is able to do this. Check out the ghosted menu commands in your Quicktime viewer.
As for VLC, it cannot play .wmv files that can't be played using Flip4Mac.
