^ Yea, and they have been promising skin support for OSX since Tiger at least...

Allegedly there are options, but I never tried any of those: The VideoLAN Forums - Skins on Mac?

by the way, having VLC is the BEST. I love making screencaps from DVDs, like of certain scenery, outfits, etc., and it's so easy with VLC as opposed to the standard Mac DVD player.
if my macbook was some kind of holy vessel I certainly would not put stickers on it :p well, everyone to his taste

^ They brought back the backlit keyboard in the new MacBook Air.
Now I'm like, eyeing my 2nd gen Air like it's not worthy anymore. haha
Seriously though, even I try to justify it by saying I don't need it cause I can touch type in the dark, backlit keypads are just so cool.

I currently have a macbook pro (and a macbook that needs screen repair). I am hooked for life. Never will buy another non-mac.

Is there a key equivalent to the "supr" one; (I don´t know if they call it that in english keyoards) I mean the one that allows you to erase forwards.

I just bought a MacBook and I cannot perform that action. If I want to erase a word I need to move the cursor to the end of the word and then use the reverse arrow.

Can anyone tell me how to do that, or do I have to just adapt?

^^I don´t have a delete key on my keydoard
At least none of them has that written on them...

Bear in mind that this keyboard is for spanish....maybe that is what makes it different....

If you can give me another hint maybe I can figure it out

Thanks a lot for the tip anyways, karma

The delete key is the key you use to erase backwards. In the US, it's the backspace key but I'm not sure what it is in Spanish keyboards. Do you have the actual Mac keyboard or an alternate one?

I don't have a Spanish keyboard. But by the sounds of it yours apparently looks different to the Spanish keyboard on this gif where you'd press 'fn' (on the far left bottom corner) and the key just below eject.

Thanks a lot for the instructions Ochi and purplethistle!

^It just depends on your needs. The Pros are great but pretty unnecessary for most people; I use my computer ALL the time for school and for personal use and even though it's a standard first-gen Macbook, it has never been incapable of doing something that I needed it to. So unless you have a specific reason why you might need the bells and whistles of the Macbook Pro, I would go for the Air if I were you. And trust me, the lightness of the Airs may seem insignificant at first, but it makes a big difference if you're going to be running around all day carrying it with you. That's the only thing that annoys me about having this Macbook, and it's not like it's insanely heavy! :p

*btw I have a rather boring question to ask you guys... in Microsoft Word, how can you get text to line up evenly on both sides of the page like the text in books/newspapers typically is? (where it automatically adds extra spacing to each line so that the lines are even at the edges of the left and right margins?)

It's called justified text - the button should be with the left, right and centre alignment buttons in the toolbar. If not you need to get the formatting toolbar up, I think that's on the view menu. The button looks like this:

On topic: So sad they got rid of the white macbooks! I've had mine nearly 4 years and I was hoping to replace it next year. Looks like I'll have to get a pro.
