Oh, forgot one of the most useful ones: Appfresh

It will automatically check for updates for all the software installed on your laptop, and update it for you. It also integrates with IUseThis, which allows you to store a list of all the software you use on the internet, then in the event you need to format your laptop, or you get a new one, it will download all the software you previously had installed.

Thans for that Pete, ill be looking into them :)

I took the Macbook to my fathers today to show him our holiday pictures.

I used the slide show, in iphoto using the Scrapbook theme, he thought i had spent ages making it into the scrapbook :lol:

Another strainge thing happened also.

My dad had a few pics on his SD card for me taken of a Santa visit he took the kids too on the Sheringham steam train.

I inserted the sd card, i photo instantly had all 2 gigs of picture displayed, in time corordination, i highlighted the ones i wanted, imported then ejected the card, all taking about 20 seconds max !!

I gave the card back to my dad, who said, didnt the card fit you computer ? :lol: he would not beilive that the pictures i wanted were allready on the Macs Hard drive, :lol:

These Apple Macs are good, takes a bit of getting used too, specially, the battery life, quick boot up and shut down, and also everything working how you would expect things to.
