    I have a 3 or 4 year old IMac So i got a few questions,

    What laptop bag is good, I like the looks of the Incase Sling Pack

    I wanna be able 2 hook up my MBP to my tv, what should i buy to get the audio to output to my surround sound?

    There is alot of talk on the boards about the yellow screens hissing etc.. I have high Hopes that I'll be lucky and not have to send mine back, but just in case what are some of the things I should be looking out for?

    Any awesome widgets i should get?

    I have a few cords from my IMAC(the 2 on the left) will they work on my MBP or am I gonna have to get another Video out cord?

    I will probabley have like 100 diffrent questions in the next few days (sorry)

    those cords will not work...

    for audio, you can get a toslik connector and get optical out to your surround system, the notebook comes with a DVI to VGA adapter, you will just need to buy a video out adapter, or use a DVI to HDMI adapter if you have an HDTV
