    Well after months and months of reading and wanting and saving....I finally got my MacBook Pro!

    15" Pro with the AMD GPU. Can't wait to start using this thing to it's potential when I start school as an engineer in the fall. Now I just need some apps to download to get the full Mac experience. This is my first Mac ever and no more than 3 months ago I was ANTI Mac. However after doing some reading and absolutely hating Windows 8, I figured it was time for a change. The only thing I'm not in love with right now is my super slow internet and the keyboard. The keys press fine but it seems like the keys are kinda tacky to my fingertips. Maybe just need some breaking in. Any tips for a brand new Mac user?

    Anyway, I'm super excited to be here and super excited to get the 15" with dGPU

    Welcome to the DARK SIDE.

    Timmy is in the corner rocking back and forth in a white jacket surrounded by padded walls after returning his 10th MacBook this month, Bob is furiously posting about his UI lag, a .00005 gram dust particle just landed on John's new rMBP and he is considering a trip to the Apple Store, and we're all WAITING FOR SKYLAKE!!!11one and all somehow know when it is coming out while monitoring our batteries and posting a thread every time its overall capacity drops 1/10 of a percent.

    But seriously, welcome. If you have any questions, feel free to bump your own thread (lol?) and I will try to help you out. I think the keyboard will just take some getting used to. They're different from most Windows notebooks if that is what you are migrating from.

    Congrats on making the right choice. ;)

    Have you setup Time Machine backup yet?

    Canada, eh!
    Yes, congrats!

    Get a case/sleeve for it. Scratches on the aluminium body scream at you! :eek:

    As someone else already noted, you've got a new computer. Make sure it is backed up! Apple makes keeping your data backed up super easy, and it's free.

    I don't have an external hard drive, so when I go to Time Machine, it just asks for an Airport Time Capsule. If I turn Time Machine on but don't plug my Macbook into any external HD, will it still make a backup?

    No, the reason it wants to back up to a separate hard drive is, that in case of a hard drive failure, you still have a usable backup!

    Welcome and lots of fun with your new MacBook!

    Also all the apps to get the full "Mac Experience" should already be installed ;)

    Congrats! I'd suggest abstaining from Mac related forums for a few weeks to achieve maximum enjoyment of the Mac experience.
