    So i just got my new macbook pro yesterday(high end 15inch) and im trying to get steam going on it to play a few games and whatnot.
    ive got it installed fine, but when i load it, it updates itself then either says:
    1: steam needs to be online...
    2:steam cant find the username or your login name/password is incorrect.

    it opens fine on my windows machine so i know i have the right login info.
    i tried the suggestions on the steam for mac forums and from google search but for the life of me i cant get it to work.

    this is my first mac in about 15years so i may just be missing something, any help is appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Reboot, try again. If not, contact Steam.

    Have you repaired Disk Permissions? Also try installing the EFI update from May 4th.

    Have you received an email from Steam with a code to allow access on that machine?
