    ...and I bloody love it. Wish I had gotten one sooner, this thing is a beauty.

    I already have Adium, any other software which is a must have on a Mac? I could do with some software that allows the machine to say awake when the lid closes, if such a thing exists.

    Insomniac does that.

    Other than that, there's no really other needed software. Explore. ;)

    Welcome to the world of reliability, friend.

    Gotta love having a Desktop and a notebook :)

    This is going to sound so fanboyish... but wow, in only half a day of owning my MacBook, I can't imagine going back to my old laptop. I had a Sony Vaio and after owning a MacBook, the Vaio feels plasticy, cheap and just a mess. I can't wait to carry on using my Mac and learning all about OS X and perhaps try to develop a few iPhone apps ;). I'm in no way a Windows hater, but Apple really have impressed me once again.

    Thanks for the welcome guys, it feels great to finally own a Mac.

    My refurbished Macbook Aluminum came last Wednesday, shortly after the logic board died on my 17" Powerbook G4. This little machine is fantastic. No blemishes, no problems whatsoever, and I bloody love mine too!

    just learned about this but when you download adium it gets you to install growl, check out the extras folder, there is growl tunes, and growl mail amungst a few other buts these are definately useful. iStat menus is also good for temp monitoring
