    I got my new MBP and wanted to try out Xcode but I can't find it. Where is it? Or do I now have to pay for it from apple.

    You can sign up for a developer account (free) and download the X code. I did this a few months ago and it was totally free then. I don't think there is a price tag on it.

    the only time you pay is to actually submit it for distribution. For someone just starting out, just download the SDK and develop some apps with just the simulator and when you're ready to distribute, buy a membership. This way you get maximum time to utilize your paid account.

    It should be on the OS disk, or the Applications disk that came with your computer. I can't remember which. (Try Applications first)

    Typically, the XCode installer is on one of the system install DVD you got with the MBP. It is not part of the normal system install but in an Optional Installs directory. You can install that and then use Software Update to bring it up to the latest version. You can do all that without signing up for a developer account, free or otherwise.

    Sooner or later Apple will release XCode 4 to the public. At that point you may need a developer account to get it. Software Update will likely not upgrade you from XCode 3 to 4.

    Don't worry about XCode on the discs, they are always going to be way out of date. Just register from that link I gave you and you'll see a download page.
