Switching from Windows 7 to OS X Yosemite; Quirks

Late last year, I replaced my iPhone 5 with a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, my first Android device, after having used iOS for the past 5 years. The decision was made partly out of my frustration with the iPhone’s lackluster battery life (couldn’t go through a day with a single charge), but mostly out of curiosity and the urge to give Android a chance. I did the same with my computer a week ago, replacing my 5-year-old Windows 7 laptop with a Mac Mini, paired with my existing 23” Dell monitor, a Windows keyboard and mouse. I picked the mid-tier Mac Mini with the 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, and upgraded the storage to a 1TB Fusion Drive.
