    My family went to San Diego to bring my grandmother to the airport, and we stopped by an exchange. I looked by the computer section, and to my surprise, there were 4 MacBooks and MacBook Pros out on display. I was glad to see them, and after taking quite some work to convince my mom and with my dad's support and help, they finally agreed to buy me the MacBook Pro 15 in. 2.16 GHz model I've been wanting for a few months now. lol It is a beautiful machine. There may be hints of grain, but I couldn't care less at this point. I'm not doing any graphics work or anything, so I'll be just fine. I am amazed at how nice it is to have a Mac, and finally join "the club." lol Sorry, no pictures, but I was very excited so I opened the box pretty much as soon as I could. As for recalibrating the battery, how do I do that? I hear that it is good to do that when you first get it, so I might do that. Thanks for the help in advance.

    EDIT: And what is the thing I should get to help control the fans and whatnot for the heat (not experiencing much right now, but it could help a lot later. lol)? And also, I was glad to get this because there wasn't tax on it since it was bought on base.

    consider this, a little app that goes into System Preferences and monitors and adjusts your fans automatically depending on the input you say (i.e., you say not to let the temperature get above 80C and it will run the fans so the computer stays below 80C all the time).

    congraultions on the new MBP! i'm sure you'll enjoy it :)

    In terms of calibrating, charge your battery fully, and then let it drain until your battery is completely empty. Then charge fully again. Done. You can use your computer while you do this, of course. :)

    You should calibrate your batter once every few months or so.

    Enjoy your new MBP!

    Thanks for saying that because if you didn't I was about to go on a mad rant lmao. You all know what I mean. No offence kid and congrats on the machine, your gonna love it. The most I can convince my parents to do is buy me a pair of paintball pants if I do well in school lol.

    Thanks a lot people, I'm definitely happy with this machine. As for convincing my parents, it is mostly that they were going to get me this computer for a while now, and it was due sometime around this month. My dad was helpful, so I guess my parents figured that hey might as well buy it now and save without paying tax.
