    Hey guys I just got myself a new MacBook pro 13" model for work and pleasure. Searched the Internet for some good apps for getting work done and notes and general organisation. Lots of free ones but they don't have to be free.

    Want to know what your suggestions are guys?

    Thanks.

    Btw I'm loving this beast ohhhh yeah baby! Lol

    Evernote is great for organization and syncs across ipod/iphone/ipad

    MacTex is great if you need a hardcore word processor for academia http://www.tug.org/mactex/ (free)

    If you want free word processing and want to stay away from microsoft
    http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/ (free)

    I'm a user of all the above

    If your thinking about upgrading your ram, you should get it from a third-party like newegg for example, where you can get the ram for $60 rather than $200, and you get to keep the ram that came with the mac which you could sell to make the price even lower.

    OP from UK so newegg is a no go, however when I was looking it was about £60 direct from Crucial so still much cheaper than going via Apple and is where my money would go :)

    Sorry I should probably give some context to that post.

    That is the thread starter's alleged self-portrait.
