Im buying the blackbook online today, since the free ipod deal is going once I get my rebate i will resell the ipod making it the same price as the white if the deal wasn't going. I have a few questions before I go ahead and order. 1) I am going to be using this as basically a desktop and it will be on my desk most of the time untill december when I leave for university where it will most likely become more mobile. Any tips on how to preserve maximum battery life, and tips for calibration. 2) I download torrents, and use RSS so it automatically downloads. What is the best torrent program for the mac (currently using utorrent for pc) and is it possible to shut the lid of my macbook for a few hours, and still have the torrents dlding? 3) What is the best program for MSN? Thanks!
