Hi everyone

I've been using various versions of TuneUp Utilities on my Windows Laptop. Do you know if there is something similar available for my Mac Book Pro?

Not really a need to use such kind of software to "maintain" Mac OS X, but if you really want to, take a look at Onyx and keep away from CleanMyMac and MacKeeper, since they are known to damage your OS more than to clean it.

PS: I have run Onyx a couple of times after I switched from Windows to Mac OS X back in 2004 and 2005, as I was still in the habit of cleaning up Windows' mess. I soon found out, it is not needed.

Thank you for your quick and helpful reply. :) I will give those links a read. I just liked the many different tweaks to performance and look of the Windows OS that were possible using TuneUp Utilities.

Ordered my mbpr on the 2nd of October and I'm waiting while the order is "stuck" in processing items.... Feeling like a child waiting for Christmas morning. I'm 31, but I feel like stamping my feet and saying: "I want my overpriced gadget now!" .... Hehe

I know the feeling, and since you have probably some time to kill, some more links for spam's sake?
Yes, I hear?

And as I do guides too:

Or check my verrrryyyy prominent YouTube channel for some Mac OS X tutorials, sometimes the music might not be up your fancy though.

Now if stridemat or SandboxGeneral would be so kind to clean that up with TIMG tags, I welcome the challenge.
