Carbon Copy Cloner - backup util
ClamXAV - antivirus
Burn - backup and write DVD's / CD's
Filezilla - FTP / uploading files

PS: Get the AppleCare Protection Plan if you can.
+Incredibly slim and light
+Works right out of the box with no junkware
- Gets INCREDIBLY hot, it will burn you if you game on your lap
- For the hardware it's pricey, but you pay for the entire package
Yes, the screen is glossy, but I haven't found it to be annoying in the slightest.
Yes, it gets warm after using it for a while, but not too bad, and the aluminum body seems to be good at dissipating the heat.
And yes, I was stressed out about spending so much, but now that it's all over, I zero regrets.
I love it.
After I got the iPad, I'm pretty sold that I don't need a real computer for about 75% of things I used to use one for. However, I was a SysAdmin in college and currently a daily photojournalist so I simply cannot do my job without a UNIX or OS X based computer. I have quite a history with Apple laptops. This list reads like the casualties in an Agatha Christie novel:
-Powerbook 160 - battery finally died
-Powerbook Duo - Failed Motherboard
-Powerbook G4 Titanium- retired after 5 dead IBM hard drives
-Powerbook G4 12" 867 mhz - dead due to motherboard failure
-Powerbook G4 12" 1.5ghz - sold to friend
-Macbook White - Dead after friend spills pitcher of iced tea on it
-Macbook White (2) - Keyboard failed
-Macbook Aluminum - Sold to Friend in need
So I go through these things like toilet paper, unfortunately. The rigors of my job do no favors either.
I upped for this 2.5ghz Core i5 model with the motivation I would hold on to this one for the next five years. So far here are my impressions....
-Fast, Fast, Fast
-Bright Display - colors feel a tad washed out if I get picky here. Display glare does bother at times.
-Decent battery life, but not quite sold on the 8 hour claim.
-Beautiful and sold construction
-Surprisingly decent external speakers ("Decent" is the key word. Most of the time I plug in my Skullcandy earphones.)
-Same great illuminated keyboard and glass touchpad
-Weight feels noticeably heftier than the 13.3"
-Windows 7 runs great (Bootcamp), but HOT as a stove burner. Windows power management sucks.
-SD card slot does me no good, my D700 only uses CF.Read more ›
