    I just orderd my new Macbook no longer then an hour ago, and I am so ecstatic!

    With the Mighty Mouse, and I have a few programs I want to get:

    Is their any other programs that I should get? I also plan on getting Aperture when I feel the need to.

    Is their anything you guys think I must do before I become a power user?

    Also, just so you guys know, I am a 8 year Windows User, so I hope Apple becomes my new way of life.

    Thanks!

    I would censor your order number, billing/shipping address, your name, etc from that picture. Better yet, I would take down that picture from Flickr and the link to it in your post.

    Welcome to Mac :) I hope to have one soon too.

    And I agree with the other 2 replies, you probably don't want that info out in the wild.

    I agree, I now know where you live, your phone number, and your web order number (who cares?). :p

    Um, yeah, it would be worth the drive to ****ville to be a buddy and sign for your 'book while you were away...

    Ditch the order confirmation! We're not all looking out for your best interests...

    Well, we don't care, cause we're not crooks. But in the wrong hands, that can lead to trouble.

    Order number, billing address, and name are usually enough information to make a change on your oder. Nonetheless, a moderator should take down that link.

    Congrats...I am waiting as patiently as I can for the new macbook pros to be released along with leopard. I am currently very happy with my iBook but I am itching for the speed/beauty of the MBP so I can show it off to my family who doesn't know better.

    I was helping my friend yesterday with Parallels and he is happy with his macbook. He says he gets lots of compliments in the office.

    I would remove Disco from your List and add Toast 8

    I would also add parallels

    Azureus
    Adium
    Onyx
    MactheRipper
    and
    Handbrake

    I dig my new macbook too ;)

    Congrats. I got mine about 2 months ago.

    The Macbook is a great little machine. Make sure you put in 2 GB RAM.

    keep disco on your list. I have had zero problems with disco, its a great little app. On the other hand, I have burned multiple coasters with toast 8 while trying to burn dvd-r, +r, and rw on my iMac core duo. There is some sort of issue with toast and the slot loading drives found on the mac portables and the imac. just check out the roxio forums and you will find multiple threads. I am done with toast

    Thanks for all the warm replies! When I recieved tracking info, it said it was already delivered and I ran to my front door, and it wasn't there! So I look again, FedEx is using the same tracking number for the same product his was shipped October 14th, 2005 lol

    I really like Disco, so I am going to keep it their! I forgot to add Adium, but that was on my list.
