Hi all. I bought my first Mac today, the i5 13" Pro. I love it so far, the battery life is amazing compared to the windows notebook that i've upgraded from. It's whisper quiet, even though i've been multi tasking quite a lot today whilst trying out my new toy. The back lit keyboard is brilliant. Being able to type as fast as normal in very low light is something I don't think I will ever go back to not having. Though I haven't done anything really intensive, the laptop has remained stone cold and I have barely heard it. Anyway, I'm very pleased with it, but I'm still finding my way around with an OS that I have never used before. I was wondering about any useful apps. I've seen on these forums things like istat and a program that controls the fan? Anyway, like I said, I'm very happy. Cheers, Ross. (p.s. i bought it from an apple reseller under a buy now pay 6 months later option. They gave me a normal education discount [I'm a student] and sadly not the HE discount. However the salesman made a typo and entered £393 instead of £939, if I didnt show my confusing to it, he wouldnt have noticed and I would have had a brand new macbook pro for £393/$675. shame i opened my mouth).
