Got the Apple I7 - now what?

Alrighty, bought a refurbished Apple I7 15" 2012 off T/me from a reputable dealer. I wish for some of us it came with an operating manual. Is there one - or do I need to buy an Idiots guide. Having had an Acer and Hp running on windows I thought I 'd go up to Apple. I turned it on, managed to set up and get on wifi. found the internet. but can't figure out a whole lot more. i.e. - how to add sites to favourites. how to set up email.
or do I need to hire a teenager to teach me this new Apple logic and operating features.

Google OS X help

Apple support website is very good:
http://www.apple.com/nz/support/mac/

Also thousands of tutorials online if you do a quick Google.

Also i7 is the processor not the device name

Alrighty - thanks for any advice.

download google chrome and use a browser your familiar with rather than safari (might help).

Chrome is a bit of a dog on OS X (well it was last time I used it). Safari is well optimised and very fast.

Yeah your probably right, I was coming from the angle he probably has used chrome under windows, so knows how to do things like add bookmarks.

just mouse across the top. you will see things really aren't that much different. eg 'add bookmark' should seem fairly obvious that it could mean favorite? . I don't often use or like windoze but can always do what I need on them just the same.
There are always help menus, or like has been said already, just google anything for the answer. Setup mail is just the same. Take a look at prefs or accounts, click + and it will lead you thru it.

a bit of an arguable statement here ;)

A fact more than a statement
