Hey all,

I'll be getting my first mac (mbp 15 late 2011) soon and was wondering what some of the essential programs are that I should get. I am completely new to mac, so I don't even know the basic programs.

This doesn't have to be just applications like a word processor, we can have some fun here too. What applications can you not live without? What are your favorites? What are some cool fun ones?

Thanks!

The man is stealthy as a ninja, and fast as greased lightening.:cool:

Also probably gives the most reliable advice as anyone on MR :D

But, just so he doesn't get a swelled head - can he play the viola while doing a step-dance?:p

Thanks GGJ. I suppose that question is a bit played out... looking through old posts seems so anti-social though!
