I've used Windows most of my life, but I've always wanted a MBP. I had an old Macbook, but it was stolen, and being a computer tech, I have some experience with macs. I'll definitely be putting W7 on there as well and probably use it quite often because some stuff I do cannot be done on a Mac. I purchased the top of the line 15" model with discrete graphics and 512GB flash storage. One of the only reasons I never purchased a MBP in the past was the lack of a number pad. It's always been what let me to another PC. I decided this time that I'm going to give it a try. If I don't like it in 14 days, I can return it, no issues there. Do any of you also have that concern? The lack of a number pad? What did you do to get over it? Is there an external accessory that I can purchase to add one on, and if so what do you all recommend?
