There is a great list of programs that every student should have on their new mac laptop as they head back to school. It is also a great list to check out for anyone else with a mac. I’m happy to say I use about 80% of the products mentioned.
One program mentioned that I didn’t know about was iAlertU. You lock your laptop with your Apple remote, and if it is moved at all, it takes a picture of the perp and locks down the system. Perfect for those long study scessions in the library when you need to get up to head to the bathroom.
