    My brand new MBP!! Unboxing pics:http://www.flickr.com/photos/lu0s3r322/310594384/in/set-72157594399522400/ It's far better than I expected. Although I have a few questions:

    When I put in a CD/DVD, the drive gets really loud when it takes the disc in like a really weird noise that I've never heard before. Maybe its because it's slot-loading. But after the disc is in, it just sounds regular. Is it supposed to sound like that?

    Is there a way to set like a default internet connection?

    Do I need to install IE for any like websites that are IE only? I think Safari and Firefox 2 are enough.

    Congratulations!

    A default internet connection? If you have ethernet plugged in, it will use that. If you turn Airport on, it will discover wireless networks. Very simple.

    you don't need IE.

    enjoy!

    I have been assured (by many including a Genius) that the noise is normal. Yeah, I know, it sounds like someone kicking to get out of your drive. I guess it is the spinner thing latching onto the CD/DVD (yeah thats a technical term).

    I have a MacBook, and it makes the weird noise when you put in a cd/dvd or eject one. My girlfriends does this too, and I've heard others do it as well, so no need to worry! All I have installed is Firefox 2.0 and Safari, and I havn't come across a page that won't open in the last 6 months since I've had my mac, so I'm sure you will be fine!

    Enjoy your new MBP!

    I don't think you actually *can* install IE, even if you did want to. I think Microsoft no longer supports it on the Mac platform - it was aged when they abandoned it.

    Yeah...IE is dead for the mac. You shouldn't have any problems surfing the net unless you have to watch a powerpoint producer presentation (say that 5 times fast!); MS doesn't support all of the plug-ins/files necessary to view it on a mac :mad:
