    I recommend you to check out the mac applications thread.. it has a sticky with all of the sites for free must-have softwares. Here are some tips:

    Dont forget to calibrate your battery

    100 must have

    iusethis is also good for software research

    have fun and enjoy your new mbp.

    First thing to do, order a couple (pair) of 2GB RAM chips -- upgrade the RAM on the MBP to 4GB. Good place to get these is OWC (macsales.com) or transintl.com -- should run you abour $100 or just over that.

    That's what I do, it will ensure you get peak performance from your system
