Hello everybody, I see this is a pretty active forum so I decide to join. I just purchased my first MBP 15" 2011 from Best Buy and so far I love the computer. I had an HP Pavilion that was also a great computer for about two years and then it slowly started to decline. I am glad that I made the change to Apple although I have always been a fan of their iphons and ipods. So far this computer is great. The screen resolution is magnificant and the speed is amazing. I am still trying to get used to OSX Lion as it is way different from anything I have ever seen. Best Buy gave me a virus software program free for six months called Smart Surfing. So far this anti virus program seems to be doing good, however it seems to slow down my computer a little bit. So far I have one complaint with the computer, the battery life. It says the battery should last seven hours. I know certain things we do on the computer affects the life of the battery. I was on skype for about 30 min and the battery was going quick Can somebody tell me what the problem is with the battery? I have adjusted all the settings to try and maximize the life. Also I noticed that some people were posting their computers temperature and stats. Where do I find this on the computer? I looked around in system preferences and couldn't find anything. I am glad to be on tis forum and I hope to learn a lot about my new Mac.
