    There's a ton of updates available. Things seem to be working ok after 10 mins.

    What updates have had no problems? I don't want ot update to the newest iTunes or OSX and have problems.

    No yellow screen on mine either!

    Update everything. Don't fear the MacRumors Dilemma! *
    I'm jealous of you new MBP owners.

    *MR Dilemma: By reading MacRumors you are subjected to reading about the worst case scenarios of things that have gone horribly wrong for a small number of Mac users.

    Congrats Amber, I know you'll love your new machine!

    I got mine last Friday and I had a ton of updates to run as well. I ran them all and my system is still running great, no problems from any of the updates.

    So you *should* be fine. I give that disclaimer because of the .01% chance that something may happen, but im 99.9% confident that you'll be fine.

    Good luck, and enjoy your new macbook pro!

    Just do all the updates, a very small amount of people have problems with them. I've never had a problem with an update.

    Do them all, and let Job sort them out.

    Congrats Amber. I've been having the same fears over the updates and the screens issues. Also the kernel panics. And my MBP doesn't ship until next week. I'm glad yours is doing so well.

    I think you should not run other applications while installing the first batch of updates, and then reboot shortly afterward.

    Two of us have had a very scary kernel panic by plugging in a USB device during/after the update process.

    I installed all of the updates on my new MBP that I received today. No problems whatsoever. I was told to just make sure that I had no other applications running when I installed them...
