    Ran out of things
    I have ran out of things to do with my MacBook. All I seem to do is browse the web. What are some suggestions for me to make my Mac more interesting again?

    Browsing the web and taking class notes is all I really do with it nowadays too. My media center handles my other computing tasks such as watching videos, listening to music, and playing games. My Macbook handles all of my photos, so I guess I use it for more than mundane tasks every once in a while.

    If you're bored with your computer, then I would suggest putting it down and doing something that doesn't involve the computer.

    Go outside. Read a book. Exercise. Meet with an old friend. Anything that doesn't involve your computer.

    Get a new gadget that draws your attention and time away from your macbook. Once that new gadget gets boring, go back to your macbook and it'll be like falling in love all over again...

    I agree with D3v1L80Y, get out of the house. To say it in another words. There is more to life than computers.

    Toss Linux on the system and become familiar with an OS which is becoming more relevant on a daily basis.
