    Perian
    Flip4mac

    You'd be better off posting in the applications area of these forums as no application is made specifically for the i7 MacBook Pro.

    Still, here are a few:

    Adium
    Chrome
    1Password
    Dropbox
    CandyBar
    Facetime
    iWork
    MS Office

    You can also take a look at google.

    I guess the true must haves as in you could do without but you really shouldn't are

    VLC (Qt Perian just has a worse interface and cannot play even close to as many files)
    BetterTouchTool(Makes the nice Touchpad something awesome)
    gfxCardStatus (nobrainer)

    Everything else depends on choice
    ie, Alfred, MacPorts, Opera, Skype, Adium, UnrarX (I really want something better), Dropbox, iPhotoLibraryManagerm, MS Office and Windows 7 ;)

    Asking which apps you need without telling us what your needs are is a bit of a shot in the dark don't you think?

    My app set I have installed on EVERY Mac I own:

    MS Office
    iWork
    Skype
    Dropbox
    Omnigraffle Professional (I suck at freehand diagrams, great stencils!)
    VLC
    Merlin (Project Management software for OSX)
    RapidWeaver (website creation tool for OSX)
    Handbrake
    Final Cut Studio (mainly for renders, not for my MBA's)
    Photoshop (not the whole Creative Suite, just PS)

    I also keep a copy of Unison (Usenet reader) on all my Mac's but don't use it that often.

    speaking of the i7, someone needs to make an i7 monitor to see when turbo boost is being used etc for the mac.
