    I got a MacBook Aluminium for christmas, and I guess I've never been so happy for anything else before :)

    The first thing I did was to run Software Update, and it found many things for QuickTime, iTunes etc.. but, if I format the disk some time in the future and won't have Internet access for a long time, I won't be able to download it again right away.

    Therefore: is there any software of any kind that can help me with this? So that it will install everything from an offline file? It's so much work to download all updates manually from Apple's Support Download site. Maybe just create an ISO file, mount it, and all updates within would be installed?

    Thank you so much for any help! I'm really glad for my MacBook, the design and feeling is just so fantastic! :)

    you can download and keep Apple's updates by selecting "Install and Keep package" from the Update menu in Software Upate. they will be downloaded to /Library/Updates.
