    I feel like a kid waiting for a new present for Gods sake. I sure hope I like this thing!

    You will. If you are new to Macs, you will get a hang of it in no time. I switched to Macs back in 2005 and I do not regret it one bit.

    If you are a Windows user and want to make your switch easy, get the following programs:

    Adium= Msn Messenger, AOL, Google Talk etc
    Adobe Reader= Read PDF files
    Firefox=Browser
    Flip4Mac= Play Windows Media Player files
    Openoffice.org=Word, Excel and Powerpoint
    Parallels Desktop=in case you want to use Windows as well.
    Toast 10=It is the Nero Burning for Apple machines.
    Un-RAR=open rar files
    VLC=plays every single media file out there

    It doesn't come with it for free. There was an option for me to order it when I ordered online, but I got it cheaper through my university.

    if you want office get it for the education discount. It is sold everywhere in the education version and there is no check to see if you are an educational customer. Microsoft knows this obviously.
