    Hi there,


    I just bought a macbookpro at Futureshop montreal, I needed a french canadian keybord but the last one was an opened box...
    The guy checked but I think I still miss some stuff...

    do you know what is supposed to come with the Macbook pro? I had no CD nor DVD, only the small black box with manual, cable DVI, 85W adapter.

    THe OSX installed is Leopard 10.5.2 so I guess it is ok for me to install XP? I am a big 3DS MAX user, as Photoshop.

    thanks for your advice!

    In the box

    MacBook Pro
    85W MagSafe Power Adapter, AC wall plug, and power cord
    Lithium-polymer battery
    Apple Remote
    DVI to VGA adapter
    Install/restore DVDs
    Printed and electronic documentation

    http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs.html

    If the machine is sold as new, demand those install/restore DVDs at minimum.

    Put two fingers on the trackpad and click.

    Click-and-hold

    Control > click

    Enable 2 finger "secondary click" in System Prefs > Keyboard/Mouse > Trackpad. Then "right click" is simply laying both fingers on the trackpad. No need to click the button.
