  • Planning on buying a MacBook Pro. Some questions..

    Yeah, so my current laptop is a piece of shit now and I've finally decided to step into the other world and I'm really excited.

    I'm planning on buying a 15" MBP. Now, please keep in mind that though I'm pretty fucking good with computers, I am an ABSOLUTE n00b when it comes to Macs, so if there's ANYTHING you would say to or advise a first time Mac user, please do it here.

    Also, what's the deal with downloading applications? I have seen that applications have different installation files when it comes to different operating systems. I know which forums to go to when it comes to downloading any application for my PC (Warez-bb/ForumW/ProjectW), but I have NO CLUE where I would go to if I wanted to download applications for my mac. Can you guys please post some sites where I can download software from?

    Oh and one last thing, is right now an OK time to buy a MBP or should I wait or something? Like I said, I know nothing when it comes to Macs, so if there's anything I should rather wait for...please let me know.



    Help a Mac n00b out..

    Was in the same boat this time last year, will never go back to windows now Warez-bb have must apps on there, this site has some of the best free apps available: http://bestmacsoftware.org/

    Installing apps is easy, either install from a setup file or simply drag the program into your applications folder.

    I think apple have that back to college offer on soon where you get a free ipod with a macbook purchase.

      BiSONN,

      For macs, there are two great forums for apps:

      http://www.macserialjunkie.com/forum/index.php

      http://www.codez4mac.com/forum/

      They literally have anything and everything you'll ever want for Mac Apps.

        It doesn't look like Apple is upgrading their MBP's anytime soon, but then again they always are up to some shit.

        Seriously dude, if you think you're good with computers, you will fucking LOVE Mac. It's so fucking simple and MUCH more convenient than Windows ever will be. Even Leeg loves it! Just little things that OSX offers.. man. If you get it and don't like it, I'll pay for your fucking MBP.

            The purchase has been made!

            Sweet fucking machine. No doubt about it. The keyboard feels so good.

            Definitely gonna take me a few days to get used to it, though.

              Damn, that was quick. I take it you have an Apple store nearby. I was going to suggest getting a refurbished one from apple.com for a lil cheaper... but either way, congrats dude. Let us know if you need any help or anything.

                          Thanks guy.

                          My first day with my MBP was a little weird. Getting used to everything and all. I thought it would take me atleast 3-4 days to understand how it use it properly. Turns out, after just one day I've pretty much gotten the hang of everything and am loving it. ...So fucking glad I made this decision.

                            The only downfall is if you played games on your PC... as you know, games aren't too big on Macs.. but other than that, yeah. It's really simple to learn everything. Every thing runs faster too. I hope you said bye to defragging, virus scanners, and adware scanners.

                              Nah, I don't game on my laptop at all now, so I guess its all good.

                              Besides the operating system feeling great and stable for the first time, there are soo many small, small features that I'm discovering which make your overall experience so much better once you get used to them..great stuff. I have absolutely no complaints so far and I really thought I would atleast some during the initial phase..
