    Hi I just bought my first macbook pro and new to the whole mac system. My first question is what programs should I download for my mac? I need program like bitorrent and frostwire, are these programs compatible. Second question is what other programs should i download? this may be a stupid question but is it possible to get viruses in macs?Thanks in advance:)

    YES viruses are on macs, although they are very very rare, just be relatively cautious and you should be fine. Istat pro is a great widget, you can google it it tells you all your computers performance, limeware is better then frost wire, they recently did a huge overhaul of limewire and it works well although as far as programs in general if theres a pc version theres a mac version. Pm me if you have any other questions on more specific programs i may be able to help =D

    WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!

    I have a question, but I'll skip the PM. What virus are you referring too?

    I'm eagerly awaiting the answer, as well! :)
    ... although, I think it's gonna be a long wait!

    ... a VERY long wait! :D
