    I'll be purchasing a new MBP 13' for the first time, moving from Windows 7, selling my current laptop. I'm currently studying Computer Science therefore doing programming on computer languages and PHP/MySQL. I was wondering, what are the base apps I should have on my mac and try to purchase in discount and with student discount. I already think I'll get TextMate, Photoshop CS5, Office 2008 and hoping which other applications I should have in mind for my MBP, even if free.

    Also, how is the MPB 13' to play WOW? I don't play much games on my laptop, but would love to be able to play this one as well as HON if needed. :)

    WoW works very well. Runs good on highest settings til you get to Dal, then FPS goes done a bit.

    Coda is a great editor for web, and check out pixelmator for image editing.
