looking to put a 2TB hard drive in my imac any recommendations?


WD caviar black if you can afford it.

Also, can anyone recommend some good apps for the mac and/or some good software to dl.


some stuff i use:

Maintenance
Appzapper - completely rids your comp of all related installed files. sometimes dragging app to trash won't completely do it (recommended).
Drive Genius 2 - drive maintenance prog
Pacifist - install individual files from installers without installing the whole prog
The Unarchiver - osx's winrar (recommended)

A/V
Audacity - free and quality audio editor
Comicbooklover - the itunes of.cbr files for you comic nerds
Fluke - converts flac files to be played in itunes
Handbrake - the best free converter you can have for osx (recommended)
Parallels - you probably know about this one (recommended)
PS3 Media Server - allows you to stream files from PS3 to OSX (specially bluray torrents, you pirates)
Tuneaid - backup ipod files to osx
Xee - jpeg/gif viewer because preview sucks (recommended)
VLC (recommended)

Customization
Candybar - archives and changes icons (recommended)
Loginox - easily changes login screen background
Slim Battery Monitor - just for aesthetics
Superdocker - dock changing client. this may be obsolete now?

Networking
Hotspot shield - one-click proxy (recommended)
iStumbler - basically detects existing wifi connections (for us nerds)

Etc.
NewNewsWire - RSS client

I use MediaLink to stream to my PS3, probably works with 360 too.

Actually the Xbox360 equivalent of MediaLink is called Connect360, by the same people.

MBP, just get the 13 inch. I too switched from a Hp to a Mbp, it is so much better and have no problems at all with it so far.

There's no DVD drive on the air, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, either one will suit you fine. Go to Apple's website, look at the specs (processor, screen size, HDD capacity), and just choose one...

I'm planning on coppin a 15 i7 MBP next year but I'm tryna get all my music from Zune to iTunes to make the switch. I used to used Tunebite which I paid for in order to strip the DRM but it isn't working sooooo.... Anyone have any ideas to help me get all the DRM files into iTunes so I can prep all my shit for my switch to MAC life?

Depends on what you're going to be using the computer for. For most people a standard macbook will be sufficient but I'd recommend a MBP if you're going to be editing and rendering for example CPU intensive tasks.
Dec 15, 2010 @ 18:40
yo , should i buy a macbook pro now? or wait for the newer model next year?
