    Depends on what you're using it for. If it's just basic school work then you'll be fine with iLife, Quicktime Pro, Microsoft's Office 2008 and Toast. If you're planning on getting into film/television production or game design then applications such as Final Cut Studio and Autodesk Maya will interest you. If you're on a tight budget then there's Blender which is free for 3D animation and modeling. Pixologic's Zbrush also runs on OS X. The latter of which was used on movies such as Lord of the Rings. For sharing files such as when working on a school project you'll find Cyberduck for FTP very useful.


    SOHO: MacBook Pro, iMac, Maya, Shake, FCS 2, iLife, iWork, Office, Time Capsule, iPhone 3G 16GB
