AppDelete is a great little thing. Works like a charm and is nice and free, too. Love it.

Installing and uninstalling things on the Mac is one of my favorite things since I've switched.

Has anybody mentioned not renaming your Home folder?? ;)

Seriously, that's one mistake I see made more often by recent switchers than just about any other.

That's a good point, but if you find yourself doing more and more Mac-related stuff, the MBP can do a great job for you. You can use any Win programs in XP via Boot Camp and with an external drive...
