o/

Macbook pro 2.2 Ghz for no real reason. I am weak.

Any good software recommends? I don't know what in yet.

Congrats!

After playing around with the included software (Don't overlook Grapher.app in the Utilities sub-folder), you might want to have a look at what I posted here.

Of course feel free to ask any seemingly stupid question.

I have exactly the same notebook btw... :)

Some decent looking stuff in there, I'll try them out when it gets here.

Any virus/firewall/torrent software worth getting? I know viruses etc. are less likely but I would like something if it's not a waste of time.

I really, really want an MBP, but 2 things are stopping me:

1 - If I get one here, it'll have a German keyboard and that'll annoy me no end.
2 - I really don't want to have to cough up another 100ish in a couple of months for the new version of OSX.

Can't you import one into Germany?

Not too bothered by the new version of OSX unless it's a huge upgrade. As I don't know much about the current one I'm happy to go with it.

You can order them with an English keyboard from the German AppleStore. That's what I did... :D

Waste of time, there are no virus for the mac, and firewall wise, just use your routers or the built in OS X firewall.

I use transmission for torrents.

Cheers.

Transmission looks good too. Seems to have an option to limit download speeds between set times - thanks to my Virgin Broadband I might need to use that. Bastards.
