hi all, Just thought i'd say hi and that I have a nice shiny new core2duo macbook! Its my first real mac and im very pleased it so far, Im getting used to OSX and the hardware is beautifully designed. Ive been a lurker on this forum for a long time and very jealous of all you mac users! so its nice to finally join your ranks! I do have a few questions that maybe some of you could help me with though: I have bought an external hard drive and downloaded the free version of superduper as I have heard this is the best backup solution, I am using it to create bootable backups on the external drive. I am planning on buying the full version, so just before i do, do many of you guys use superduper? and are you pleased with it? Is it worth buying a program like appzapper? I have heard that some programs leave crap on your mac after they are uninstalled, so should i get a program like this and is appzapper the best one? And one last question - I have heard that I could cut down on a lot of wasted hard drive space by re-installing OSX and getting rid of excess printer drivers and languages that I wont ever use. Is this a good idea and are there any guides out there detailing how to do this? thanks guys!
