My MacBook Pro has been my first Mac computer. I've wanted to switch for a long time, but the Intel change gave me the push I needed. Anyway, I've had my MacBook Pro since the first batches were being shipped out, and since I had never setup a Mac before, I just ran through the setup and was on my way- easy enough. However, the account was of course an administrative account. Having had some experience with Linux, I know that when you create your root login, you'll want to create a general user account to regularly use and only use the admin account if necessary. Should I make an additional normal user account without admin privileges to use on a daily basis for added security, or am I fine using the admin account made during setup? When installing things I still get prompted for my password and such, but I'm wondering what other people have to say. I ask this now after a couple months because just today I finally sent mine in due to a load of issues I've been having, though I know some still don't seem to be solvable by Apple (extreme heat, small defects in the screen, buzzing screen, cpu whine, flaking paint under the keyboard, power loss after a few minutes of running on battery, and warping of the battery's casing). When I do get it back, I hope it's a new machine and not just mine "repaired"... but either way, I plan to do a reinstall of the OS and start fresh now that I've used the system enough to be much more in-the-know of how to do various things and what apps I want installed. Just looking for some input on if the general user account is a good (and necessary) move. I just don't want to end up in a situation where I have to switch users everytime I want to install something.
