    okay so i am 1 week into using my brand new SR Mackbook and i F**** LOVE IT!!
    just have a few questions towards it, with a few software things.

    1. i am taking a course at school and i use the whole Microsoft office suite. i have Microsoft 2007 on the mac but no visio. wondering if someone out here new if there was a visio for mac? or a program just like visio that can adapt with visio and the mac program itself.

    2. i am wanting to know how ppl get their core temps of their computer in the task bar near their audio button and airport icon? as well as the percentage of how your fast your processors are working

    So far i am really enjoying my mac. i can really see now why ppl love macs

    I don't know of any version of Visio for the Mac, but I'm sure there's a reasonable facsimile out there.

    However, if it needs to be Visio: Put Windows on there (either virtually or natively) and then install Visio on that. As a student, you should be able to get a copy of it from the Microsoft Software Developers Alliance (MSDNA) for free. Windows too. I've downloaded lots of free software that way.

    The only program worthwhile that they don't give you for free is Office :S but oh well. Good luck!

    Why do people insist on making such misleading titles? Just so we can come in here and hear about your new crappy laptop? bah
