Just made "the switch"

OK so i'm going to be going back to school to study multimedia so i decided to get a Powerbook G4 Mac after using a PC the rest of my life. So i am fairly new to macs, i do have two friends who were trying to convince me to switch for years, so ive used theirs before. Anyways, the reason for the thread is i wanted to know if there are good websites or anything else that would be good for someone new. Anything that would help me learn about the mac or just something to keep me up to date. Any help and advice from you guys would be appreciated. Thanks.

Any particular reason you didn't get a Macbook Pro with the Intel Core Duo? That way your OS options would still be open, and you'd have a much more powerful computer.

Advice: Wait a bit. Apple has something big brewing. Plus the new MBPs seem to be overheating.

I'm no mac fan boy in the least, as I still use both platforms with equal respect, but my macbook hasn't given me any symptoms of overheating in the slightest, even when used for very extended periods of time. It does get rather hot to the touch though.
