    Going to get my new MBP later..
    What good softwares are there?
    So far I am getting CS3 suite, PainterX, iLife, and iWork; would anyone recommend MobileMe subscription, how useful is it?

    Mostly I will be using them for stuff like digital painting and conceptual storyboarding...
    Does anyone have any other software recommendations?

    I used MobileMe for about a month and really hated it. Then again, that was when it first launched and was really buggy (not synching contacts correctly, erasing my calendar on my iPhone, etc).

    Adobe CS4 Suite is released today, get that instead of the CS3, you get hardware acceleration and other new features.

    I use iLife and MobileMe to produce and host my website. I have a personal domain but use MobileMe to host my website. I like to consolidate my email to the .mac.com/me.com also rather than @comcast.net, earthlink.net or whoever your ISP. As a photographer, I also have Lightroom to go with my CS3.
