Hello Mr. Cheng,

good choice! Load your .emacs file (which you can usually find at [1])
with "C-x C-f", paste the code [0] into it, save with "C-x C-s". Then
either restart Emacs or type "M-x eval-buffer" and hit Enter. This
command remaps "Meta" to the "Apple Cmd-Button" and let's you use
"Alt" for the brackets. I think this is the most useful way to go on a
Mac.

Have fun & best regards from Karlsruhe! :-)
Ciao
  Nico
