Just keep your storage and desktop clean and watch what you download. It's not as easy to get viruses but they can still happen and when they do, they're not pretty. Other than that, not much different than a windows laptop! The speakers on Macbooks tend to get crappy quick, like iPhones. Macbooks are a lot better than your average laptop, especially for work and school imo. Gaming is a struggle but if you don't plan on it, you're good to go

Good investment. I know they are not cheap, but they have built in antivirus protection (I believe). Not sure if the newer ones have the CD/DVD drive as this was always useful, especially if you don't have access to a TV (in a hotel room for example) and want to watch a DVD.

Mine lasted for about ten years before it started giving me a black screen or just shutting down altogether, then restarting. So annoying.

Learn by heart the reset buttons, PRAM and SMC reset should you face any hardware issues going forward. Also, you can get a comfortable silicone keyboard cover from Amazon or eBay (normally a few pounds) and it will protect your keyboard from any spills (as it can be over £100 to get a new keyboard fitted through fluid damage).

Best wishes with your new macbook pro

I have the same laptop. Best laptop I've ever owned. On the flip side I'm also trying to sell mine late 21 pro with 16gb of ram lol.
