Default Greetings, new Mac Book Mini(Dell 9) owner - 03-23-2009, 12:07 AM

Hi there,got my mini delivered Mar20 & got it setup this weekend. White with 16 gig SSD & 1.3 webcam and 1 gig ram(plan to upgrade soon. BIG thanks for all the info on this site, couldn't have done it without you. Ya, this keyboard takes a bit of getting used to. Also added the startup sound with an app I googled (systemsound5.0.zip), doesn't sound at first but when boot up is complete but at least I have the MAC SOUND. Just wanted to say "hi"

Congrats on the Mini. Now you must download the must have APPs. Get an SD card from eBay for extra storage. Download the program called:

OpenOffice.. Like Microsoft Office only free
Download: Dock Color (Changes color of dock)
Download: Magnifique (install different themes with just 2 mouseclicks.
Skype for Mac
Adium for IM
QuickSilver
Dropbox
ETC ETC ETC

Have fun.

Thanks for the welcome. Already upgraded the ram and the WiFi card, added a bluetooth dongle. Have a 16Gb SD card installed already and a 60GB external drive. Installed Virtual Box for windows on the external so I can calibrate my home theatre. Still have to install Skype & Adium and Open Office. This is my 3rd Mac computer(2 mini's) and 2 iPods so i'm Apple thru & thru!
