    I'd wait until after October, if there will be another event to present the iPad Mini/Air. It's not a stretch to imagine there would be updated Mac's as well, with our without a Retina display.

    After seeing pics of people's white iPhones I'm tempted to get a white one. Will most likely be a last minute decision for me.

    Updated my iPad to iOS6 and i can feel that the new system is faster. I also really like the new app store interface.

    Ok I'll wait then. I feel my current PC starting to break down and I'm really getting sick of windows tbh.

    Just had an hour with my dads black Iphone 5 (no scratches) and whilst it does seem a nice bit of kit i just felt a touch underwhelmed with the whole thing. Ive owned first Iphone and Iphone 4 and after having a good tinker with it ill stick with what ive got at the mo.

    Anodizing increases wear resistance. All aluminum has a small passivated layer naturally. It must be something else.

    Has no one got this phone yet? Thought there'd be a bit more buzz around here. Is it disappointing or something?

    I should've had one by now but O2 decided it would be better to bend me over a desk and shove an iPhone sideways up my nether regions! Probably get one in two weeks when I'm back from the states unless I can buy a a sim free one for cheaper over there

    Edit: A quick search leads me to believe that you can't buy a sim free iPhone 5 in America? That's a bit annoying could've saved a nice amount of money if they did

    No,i don't think SIM free. But verizon's are unlocked, so you could keep an eye on eBay for one.

    Well I am heading out there on Thursday but i've been reading and a iPhone bought in the US wont support LTE in the UK and vice versa. And for that reason it doesn't seem worth me doing. I'll just suck it up and continue on contract with O2

    You should if you buy from the apple store. Though they may not start selling unlocked versions for the first month or 2 to cope with contract customer orders.

    Yeah i'm only in America for two weeks, also it won't give me 4G speeds in EU so it would be a bit of a waste buying it. Decided when i get back i'm just going to buy a 32GB sim free phone and go on a 1 month contract with '3' and get 200 minutes, 5000 texts and unlimited data for 12 a month. Seems much better than paying 200 for the phone then 41 a month for 24 months for unlimited calls and texts and 1GB of data

    I find the question of must have apps impossible to answer because it is so subjective based on your needs. However, I'll give you a run down what I use. And if you post your needs we can tune it to suit you.

    Here's some examples of apps most geeks like.

    Omnifocus for their Getting Stuff Done system. Launchbar for faster app launching and more. Keyboard Maestro for making KB shortcuts and macro's for stuff you do all the time. Fantastical for calender stuff.

    I've probably forgot some things but that should get you started.

    Yeah I'll mostly be using it for web browsing, word processing, and some other random things. I'll check out these apps when I get the MBP. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Sure thing. Familiar yourself with the bundled applications. The iLife suite is really powerful and those apps are worth knowing inside out. Textedit is more powerful as a text editor than most people think, it's really worth your time investing into learning it throughly.

    I have another question about my new MBP. Is Mountain Lion going to be installed when I get it or do I have to update it myself?

    Really? It hasn't crashed once on either my iPhone 4 or my iPad 2. Maybe your install got corrupted somehow, try restoring it as new perhaps.

    Mountain Lion will be pre-installed.

    I was a bit wary about the increased screen size as I find certain larger android phones a bit uncomfortable to use, I've had no problems with the iphone 5 however, very easy to use with one hand.

    Also I love iCloud! just logged in on my new phone and everything was there, used to spend hours transferring everything to a new phone

    Alright, gonna try that. Also another issue. There's a section on itunes when I ipod is plugged in called other space. It's nearly a gig and I can't figure out why that section is so big.
