Some of you may remember my post here where I discuss my new purchase. Well, it turns out I could get a new 12" PB through an educator friend for $1499. I figured it was a better deal, what with the extra CPU power, bigger and faster HD, better SuperDrive, drop protection, etc. In the interim, I've decided to switch back to my beloved Mac platform permanently. The PC will only be for online poker, text sims, and Quicken (unless I think the upgrade would go smoothly for my 6+ years of data). Soooo... now my question is, what do you guys do upon buying a new Mac? I saw the often-referenced threads here and here, but my question is a bit different. Not just what programs do you install, but what do you do? Partition the HD? Install Gentoo? Migrate files from your PC/older Mac? Install scripts in User/Library? Of course, any special programs/customizations? My hope is this thread could become useful to upgraders/switchers in addition to the myriad "Just got a new Mac, what do I do?" threads. Instead of asking the forum what I should do, I'm interested in what you do. Perhaps this doesn't make sense or is overly duplicative. If that is the case, I apologize. I just like accumulating information about the Mac experience, now that I am fully back in the fold.
