    Well I just got my macbook pro a little bit ago and I love it. I was a Windows user for life but not that I got a Mac I love it. I downloaded iStatpro and a few other widgets but is there anything else I should do? :D

    sdfd504, Congrats on your new MBP. I just got my MBP a few weeks ago and would recommend the following software.

    NeoOffice - Free MS Office equivilant Apps (Word Processor, etc...)
    Transmission - Free Bittorrent Client
    Flip4Mac - Free - allows you to play amost everything in Quicktime.
    VLC - Free - Will play everything else that Quicktime can't.
    The Unarchiver - Free - Unzips Everything!
    Firefox - Free - Like it better than Safari
    Gimp - Free Photoshop Alternative
    Monolingual - Free - Will remove unwanted language files off your HD and help free up some Drive Space.
    ONYX - Free - Drive and System Maintenance Utility
    AppleJack - Free - System Maintenance and Repair utility that you can run in Single User Mode (Can really help if things get messed up)
    Shapeshifter - NOT Free - Will allow you to Skin/Theme you computer in some very cool ways.

    I'm not sure what other things your into or what type of things you want to run but I'd check those out...

    read up on monolingual though, some of the guys in the apps forum seem to think it might cause issues with certain programs

    I just ordered this same system on the 14th, how long did it take for them to ship yours from the time you ordered it? Mine hasn't shipped yet.

    I just got my (refurb) Black Macbook C2D yesterday, and now I see why Itunes for windows was like a cup of ice water in hell. This is the best computer I've ever used, even after putting Windows on it made it the best PC I've ever used.

    Congrats. I am a proud macbook pro owner too. I went to the store yesterday and they had the exact one in stock so I picked it up. I am counting down the minutes until I get out of work so I can go home and play with it!

    Mine is still just prepared for shipment, even though they told me it would go out today. I was really hoping they would meet or beat their ship date, but now it looks like it might not go out till Monday =(
