comment Notebook function formatting
Personally I see no issue with Mathematica code not looking like C or some other language. I rather enjoy that it doesn't necessarily look that way.

comment What is Mathematica's equivalent to MATLAB's Simulink?
@WalkingRandomly - and no one can blame them doing so, since object based modeling turns out becoming more and more popular in a lot use cases. However, I would not suggest it to someone really comfortable with Simulink, especially not when working with e.g. signal-proceccing, control theory or the like. (While the capabilities of Mathematica in both mentioned fields are rather nice indeed - Version 9 looks even more promising with build-in functions like PIDTune)

comment How to set default save directory for notebooks?
@John Fultz I am glad that Mathematica integrates so nicely with OSX. In my opinion it is a elemental feature of OSX that usage of system wide GUI-logic is encouraged and that most programmes out there play within the 'rules'. Examples where custom interfaces are used (e.g. ditching the top menu bar of OSX - like Matlab does) turn out pretty bad in like 99% of the time and just ruin user experience.

You can't really compare SystemModeler and Simulink because the latter is based on transfer-function models and SystemModeler uses the object oriented modeling- language Modelica. Sure you can simulate a lot of systems in both packages, but the process of doing so is nothing alike. Furthermore Modelica is suitable to simulate multidomain problems (including e.g. thermal systems).

I guess this is more of a question to be asked to the fellows of Wolfram- support. (or your ISP if this is just a question of connection quality)

comment Generating a range of numbers according to some rules
I am a bit occupied at the moment, but my first guess for solving your problem would be GatherBy or BinCount, or BinList - depending on what exactly your output should look like.

Of course Mike is right: Apply is what you were looking for. I missed to notice that you explicitly not wanted to end up with a list of variables as input argument.

comment Generating a range of numbers according to some rules
On second thought: What do you intend to use this list for? Since you said you are new to Mathematica, it could well be that there is a build-in function for what you intend to do.

As a first start you could write one function as Piecewise spreading your values over your Range N. Just in case: Rule of Thumb - never use For- loops
