Ok so I have just received my MBP today and i'm really really really x1000000 happy. :)

What software and tips have you guys got for me in terms of maintaining and getting the best out of it.

- I'm ordering a case tonight, as recommended by a friend..and someone on here mentioned this or a similar case too..

- Insurance will commence from January, and I have 3 years warranty with my student discount.

So was looking for tips and all and software that may be helpful/useful.

As you can tell i'm a first time Mac owner, have used Mac's now and again but have never owned one, until today.

Thankyou in advance.

It will get hot and the fan(s) will run fast. This is normal and your Mac is not malfunctioning. Your battery health will go up and down a few percentage points for the first year of its life. This is normal.
