Hello people!

I'm sure you don't like newbie questions, but hey, I've gotta ask some. I just downloaded and started looking at the Blender application, and it looks very interesting. I'm using it on my Mac mini, and even with the whimpy graphics, it does way better than I expected. Anyways, I'm 14 years old, and i'm looking into doing some 3D Animation, and maybe go into a profession that uses it. I'm really excited and I hope you people here can help me out and get me on the right track when using Blender.

My questions:

1) What are some good "beginner" projects you suggest to me, so I can get a good feel for the Blender application?

2) How many of you here are professionals, and what tips can you give me so I can be successful in Blender and also in 3D Animation in general?

3) Will my Mac mini be fine for using blender, or is the graphics card not enough? As many of you know, the Mac mini's graphics card cannot be upgraded, since it is intigraded into the motherboard.

These are my questions as of right now, and i'm sure i'll have some more once I get more used to the program and get more experienced.

Thanks and hello again,

TyPod
