    Just wanted to say its PERFECT! No screen issues, yellowing, etc...

    I ordered it Monday and it came today! Only took 4 days to get to me, that's pretty awesome! The ship date was supposed to be Monday, but had an unexpected suprise when I got to work!

    This is my first Mac, and I was wondering what are some essential programs/software i should download for this beast? And anything I should do? I know someone had a thread about this before, but I have been searching all day and could not find it!

    Thanks for any help and I'm glad to finally be a proud Mac owner!

    I believe those problems were limited to the 15 inch versions.

    Glad you enjoy it! I myself have a 15" on its way, also my first Mac. I've been bookmarking some links to helpful "switching" sites, here are some from my list to help you:

    Between all of those sites, you should find what you need! I especially enjoyed that Lifehacker guide! [Edit: In terms of useful software, try the second link in the list.]

    Hope it helps,
