Jeez, everyone is going nuts with 4GB of RAM on their MacBook's.

iPhoto, Adium, Transmission, YouControlTunes, Connect360 (if you have an Xbox 360), Toast Titanium, umm....AppZapper, Audacity, iWork, VLC, VisualHub. That's about all I can think of.

Scribbles is a fun and really well-designed drawing app that you just have to try. Handbrake's a great app that lets you rip DVD's and put them on your hard drive. If you have WMA or other files that isn't compatible with Mac, get Switch. It's a wonderful, completely free music converter.

I bought mine just a week ago too :) Congrats on your purchase.

:( But I'm fidgeting at the possibility that the MB's might be updated this Tuesday. Oh God no.

I wouldn't worry about it. There's been talk about it for months upon months now. Enjoy your new computer and don't think about it :)
