PC iPod + New Macbook = Headache

PCtoMacFilter: Is there an easier (faster) way to get my 37 gigs of music stranded on my PC formatted iPod onto my new Macbook than copying it to a PC with 3rd party software, burning it to dvds, and then ripping the dvds onto the Mac? Apple says "no," but please tell me they are wrong.

How to get MacBook screen/iSight repaired quickly from Canada?

How can I get my MacBook screen and iSight repaired quickly (by March 6), safely and affordably? I'm in Canada and I do not have AppleCare. The screen cracked and iSight stopped working after I dropped it about a metre, but the laptop is otherwise usable. I'm searching on Google but I would like some recommendations of specific companies.

Now that the new MacBook Pros are out, I need to decide between buying a new one or getting one of the models they were selling a week ago for $600 less. Given that I'm a video editor/compositor, is a Penryn processor and 512MB of VRAM (vs 256) worth the extra cash? [more inside]

Plain backpack to carry MacBook

Need small-as-possible, simple backpack that will fit a MacBook. I love my little Eastpak bag (like this one) but it's not quite big enough. I want something that is super-plain in dark colours that is just big enough. It doesn't have to be padded or have a special laptop slot.

MacBook hex screws

What's the proper hex screwdriver to use to remove the four hex screws on the metal sleeve in a (black) MacBook hard drive? 5/64" seems the closest, but it's been a real struggle. 1.5mm is too small and 2mm seems too large.

Should I trade my PC Laptop for a Macbook?

I was talking with a friend who owns a Macbook. She was talking about how she doesn't really use it for much and is looking for something newer. I mentioned that I just got my laptop but that I didn't like Vista and have been interested in Macs. Long story short, we came to the conclusion that we might each like to trade out laptops. I'm wondering if this sounds like a fair trade: [more inside]

Everything on my Macbook Pro's screen is so tiny. How can I make it easier to see?

I'd really like to switch to Mac, and just got a MacBook Pro. Because of my vision, I really need everything to be larger in order to see the screen comfortably. (I previously used a 15" ThinkPad at 1024x768, and a 19" monitor at 1280x1024) On the Mac, the screen's set at 1440x800, and everything appears incredibly tiny. I really need it to be at 1152x720 to feel comfortable using it, but everything becomes fuzzy since this is a non-native resolution of the LCD. I've also tried everything else I can think of to make things larger, including adjusting browser text sizes, playing with the settings in System Preferences, and hacks in the Terminal such as adjusting adjusting the display factor, which nearly does it but is quite buggy. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything else worth trying? Is it possible to hire someone to replace the LCD in the MacBook Pro with a one that has a lower native resolution? Or am I stuck with my ThinkPad for the forseeable future?

Why does my C2D Macbook Pro fan run constantly?

I have a 2.33 Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro 15 inch laptop. Recently, I have noticed that both fans on it constantly run at the maximum 6000 rpm's. The noise is driving me nuts, and the battery seems to run out much sooner. My question is in two parts: (1) would anything in the system logs help explain why this is happening? and (2) how can I make it stop? [more inside]
