    Dec 31, 2007
    2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2 gigs of ram (already have the other sticks at home to upgrade to 4)
    200 gb 7200 rpm hard drive
    15" Glossy Widescreen Display

    there it is, I should be getting it Friday.

    I'm pretty much looking for some advice. What should I do first? Any tweaks? Do I need Anti Virus software?

    I've been using PCs for years and I've never used a Mac:eek:

    Congrats! I just got my new MBP yesterday also. Not my first Mac, but still a great new toy :). I'm not sure what to tell you to do first, but you don't need Anti-Virus. Still use the usual precautions as far as viruses, but honestly there's not a whole lot to worry about. I'm not so fanboyish to suggest Macs simply don't get viruses, but it's not as issue like it is in the Windows world.

    Great choice on your purchase and hope you enjoy your welcome to the Mac world!
