    OK I bought my first Mac ever last night, MBP 13" 2010 Base. I'm really happy with the purchase. I've already did a fresh install on it :D and battery calibration. Also I installed the following:
    -Better Touch tool
    -Perian
    -Flip4Mac
    -Office 2008 for Home & Student
    - MSN messenger 8 Beta
    -Final Cut Express 4
    -CS5 Suite
    -uTorrent

    I'm still getting used to the whole thing, but I'm loving the experience so far. I've read lots of stuff the past two weeks but now I seem of have forgotten most lol

    Also took some pics with my DSLR :D:cool:

    I can't wait to get a base MBP 15" for myself! I'm hoping they start the back to school sale soon

    As far as purchases are concerned - there is no better experience than taking home a macbook and opening it.

    The feel of this thing in your hand is amazing, I can literary feel the quality :cool:

    The transition has been really easy from windows to Mac, but for me I've never had an issue with any type of technology lol

    I just got my first Mac and I must say I truly love this computer. I see why they cost so much. Os X was different at first but very easy to learn and in general much better than Windows in its own way.:cool:

    Welcome to the club

    But FYI there was absolutely no need to format and re-install when you purchased it. It's not windows where you get a computer crammed with useless bloatware. Twas just the system you've got on there now.

    My base 13" MBP is 5 weeks old according to Coconutbattery and i've had it for about 3. It's amazing, and i don't see why i would need to spend more for the 15", for my own uses (surfing, word processing, some gaming on win7). Though i don't do any real photo/video/audio processing. I guess that's where all the processing power goes.

    Instead of MSN messenger, try the IM client Adium. Extremely customisable and very Mac friendly. :)

    I've added NTFS Mac 3g for ntfs write support and blackberry desktop manger, which means I can tether my baby anywhere over the 3G network using my blackberry bold :cool:

    also I've downloaded iPhone SDK 3.2

    I worked on some AVCHD videos last night, and I love the Expose and spaces thing, I had my Final Cut Express in its separate window and then had my iTunes and web browsing in another window. It a very good way to keep things organized and separated :cool:. I had no issues working with the 13.3" screen but again I'm not doing pro work, just some amateur stuff. I can't believe what I've been missing out on all these years :apple:

    I had no issues running encoding and doing working on FCE 4 and dealing with AVCHD videos, no issues with space or performance.

    Here is what I produced. I love my Mac :D

    Why did you do a clean install - i thought it was a new machine? You don't have to do a clean install when you buy a mac, it doesn't come clustered full of third party crap like windows laptops do. :)

    I recommend transmission instead of uTorrent, I found that it's a lot more intuitive and does exactly what it's meant to do.

    Did anyone else think this was going to be a thread about the first ever Mac user with pictures of them using it?





    maybe it was just me?
