    What are some of the must have apps, add ons, etc... Anything special I need to know about this beauty? Treat the battery like an iPhone battery, right? Should I put some sort of skin on it?

    Thanks :D

    Via network - wireless or Ethernet.

    Go to System Preferences > Sharing and enable File Sharing on the iMac and login to the iMac via the MBP with the name and password of the account you have on the iMac.

    I've found that Quicksilver has been really invaluable for my productivity! It has a little bit of a learning curve, but once you get it, you can save a lot of time and effort launching applications, opening docs and even controlling open apps.
