    Default Just Got a Macbook Pro

    I got the 13 inch. These things are expensive, but I'm happy. This is my first Mac, switching from using a Dell computer. Anything I need to know or download?

    The first thing you should know is that new MBPs are coming out within a month or two.

    Charge the battery all the way up, and then let it drain all the way down. Don't plug it in halfway to recharge. It will improve the life and performance of the battery.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    What kind of things will you be doing on it? I do a lot of music and wireless stuff at home so I can recommend a lot of software.

    Anythimg from DVD ripping, etc. There's a lot of free stuff that I can't live without.

    Versiontracker.com is your friend.
