    Default **I'm Now Officially A Proud Member Of The Macbook Pro Family!!!**

    Hey guys so after alot of saving and patience I finally bought my new MBP yesterday! I'm so super stoked cos I've been waiting for this machine for ages!

    I picked up the new 15" i7 2.00Ghz Quad Core 4GB 500HDD. This thing is a beast so far and I'm loving it! I've been playing around with it a little bit, and it will take some getting used to I think, but so far so good! I moved from a Hp dv7 17" which was ok but this is MUCH better IMO.

    What I would like to ask all you guys out there with MBP's, what can I do to really tweak my new MBP to make it tip top for Djing? Do you have any suggestions or recommendations about any programs to install to keep it optimized and running smooth and perfectly? Thanks in advance guys!

    Dustin V.

    Macs are extremely customizable, everyone can personalize theirs to their liking.....

    get vlc, set hotcorners/spaces and whatnot to your liking, ipowerhour is a fun program.

    you can set automation to shut everything down/boot up traktor in one keystroke

    EDIT: FOUND IT !

    It's a mac! No customization needed.

    If you want to customize it, then that's fine too, but just start loading it up with everything and go to work!

    Congratulations buddy! Welcome to the right side (I went there!).
