    don't try and make your Mac like your windows PC.

    Accept the differences and move on.

    CTRL+Click is right click if you don't have a multi button mouse. I would suggest getting one if you use your laptop at a desk more than not. The track pad gets old.

    BTW, do you know you can scroll pages by using two fingers on the track pad?

    I don't see anything about secondary click.

    get ready to experience the quality of a $400 HP. in a couple of weeks, your laptop will make sqeeks and cracking noises when you open/shut the lid.
