    Sweet... you will love it more as time goes by...

    Wallpaper settings is at:

    Click Apple logo (upper left corner)... System Preferences ... Desktop & Screensaver ... Desktop tab.

    Also, be sure to do the software update for any patches and updates...

    Is this worth getting if I already have an iPad 2? I was looking at these myself as I would like to replace my 6 year old Dell desktop in the future.

    Congrats! I've used Macs since 99, with a brief disastrous affair with a Toshiba Satellite notebook, and I can say that I'll never make that mistake again!

    If you are ready to get a replacement machine, I doubt you'll be disappointed in a MBP. May take a little time to adjust, but I honestly find them way easier to use than Windows. I'm trying to hold off on replacing my aging MacBook with a Pro, but wanna wait until the new redesign.

    I think it is worth it Irish Rose. I have an iPad 2 and my kids completely took that thing over. I rarely get on my desktop now that I have this. I am just in awe everyday using this thing. I still can't believe I waited this long to get one.

    Absolutely love it!

    I hope that helps.

    I just picked up a new MBP the other day. I am very pleased with it, main reason i picked it up was final cut pro X. Honestly its drag and drop feature makes video editing such a breeze.

    Other than that, i've been wanting a laptop for quite sometime to take on the go. This certainly fills my urges.
    To IrishRose, I wouldn't replace a desktop with a laptop. Laptops can fall out of the technology race pretty quick, where as a desktop it could just take a new graphics card or new processor to make it last just a few more years. Unless you could use this for on the road purposes or taking it to and from work everyday, I'd get a desktop.
