    Well I finally jumped onboard the Apple train and got a MacBook Pro. It's taking a little getting used to but overall I am very pleased, seems the possibilities are endless as to what you can do, and everything is so streamlined.

    Very happy with the product! :cool:

    Welcome to the finer side of computing. I bought my MacBook for the same reason I did my Tacoma, quality and reliability. Remember to completely drain your battery at least once a week and it will last you years. Also, dont just close applications with the red x, you must quit an app to fully close it, this is one of the biggest issues converts have.

    Thanks guys! Any Apps or programs I should look into getting right off the bat? I've got keynote and Microsoft Office, that's about it for stuff that didn't come on it already.

    Get google chrome. HandBrake is good for ripping DVDs. Transmission for torrents
