Sunday 9:40 PM EST the submit order button was placed. I got a email saying my order should be shipped thursday *blah* neye: but that was estimated and Im hoping its shipped sooner. 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:

anyone want to help me get a list together for must have software ??

open office is the only one i know of...

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.
