    It has been decided. I will soon be the owner of a 17" Macbook Pro (thankyou for helpling me reach this decision). I can't wait, it will be replacing my trusty Quicksilver which I got exactly five years ago. It's never gone wrong once and I'm very sad to see it go.

    ANYWAY!

    What would you recommend me downloading for my new MBP?

    Welcome to MR, and congrats on your new MBP.



    Having said that, please take a look around the forum before posting a thread like this; there are MANY 'what software should I get for my new machine' threads already out there. Take a look at those and if there's a specific application you need addressed, then start a new thread regarding that.

    Thanks, and enjoy your new MacBookPro.

    Speaking of quicksilver, start by downloading quicksilver..

    and then the usual suspects

    VLC
    Handbrake
    Flip4Mac
    MactheRipper
    Clutter
    Adium
    Skype

    That's a good start.

    Does skype cost money or is it a free program/service?

    Skype is free, to call other computers. If you want to call regular/mobile phones, you have to pay a per-minute fee.
