I can not wait ! I will have to upgrade my ram thats for sure but at a later time, right now im lucky to be able to even order a ibook. I got it for $800 new :mac:

    I would get NeoOffice instead of OpenOffice. (It is a Mac port of Open Office.)

    QuickSilver makes my short list. It is a little hard to explain, here is a good explanation for why I like it.

    Other than that you might take a look around VersionTracker. SubEthaEdit is nice, VoodooPad for quick note taking, AdiumX for instant messaging, vlc/mplayer for video playback.

    Hey, that quicksilver looks kind of cool. Is it like a replacement for the dock? I see they have different plugins. so would an AIM plugin take the place of the dock AIM plugin?

    Yes, if you write your own code this is a great free program (for personal use) for that. I wrote my website in it using html with css. not bad and it color codes the coding.
