    My Powerbook G4 came with bundled software like Quickbooks NUE, OmniOutliner, etc.
    Do the new Macbook Pros (or Macbooks) come with this kind of extra software? I am specifically wondering about Quickbooks. I looked on Apple.com and it only lists iLife and Mac OS X software and included software, so that is why I am wondering.

    Thanks

    It comes with a lot of software, but I've never heard of the programs you mentioned. Then again, I am a Windows XP switcher since little over a year now. Perhaps, if you clarify what the software does, maybe I can tell you whether or not something equivalent ships with it.

    Later, Parsec

    My MBP came with iLife, a trial of iWork, a trial of MS Office and Omni Outliner.

    But it didn't come with Quickbooks.

    There are a few other things too, but nothing really of note.

    No quicken here either, and after trying it out my heart isn't broken over it. Just iLife, iWork trial, office trial, comiclife, and some other trials.

    Ditto the above, except it also came with Aperture.

    I guess that answers the question then. Thanks everyone.
