Hi everybody! I just bought a new MacBook Pro and it's awesome! I am totally new to this Apple stuff, and I read the user's manual and I visited the Apple website and looked around for good information, and I also looked around the Internet to see if there are any helpful websites to get the fullest out of my new mac. I have already preinstalled iWork suite and the Microsoft suite, and other applications such as Safari which should obviously be already there, but I still did not download any others. If you have any recommendations for applications, websites, tips, and accessories please tell me, even the smallest bit of information would be really helpful for me, thanks!
