    Depends on what it says is missing. Probably the most common one would be Adobe Flash. You can get that here. That's the most common one I can think of.

    Finally had a site tell me what I was missing. And yes, it was the adobe flash player. Give it to Target to tell me what I needed.

    I will look into the Western Digital.

    Another backup option is Time Capsule from Apple. This is a combined Wi-Fi base station and Time Machine backup hard drive all in one.

    I'm not 100% convinced on this one though. Some users have reported some issues with it. I haven't examined it too closely. But I thought I'd throw it out there for you to think about. It's a bunch more expensive than an external drive however.

    Tom (... other things to cloud the waters up a bit.)

    Something else you need to check out that's pretty cool and included on your Mac is Facetime.

    If you've got friends, relatives or whatever who have either a Mac, and iPhone 4, or and iPad 2, you can have video calls with them anywhere in the world as long as they're connected to the internet.

    And it works great!

    Yeah, I saw that one but couldn't swallow the price tag.

    Welcome to the world of Apple, Foreverducky! I know you are going to love your machine. One of the best features will be NO PROBLEMS for at least oh, eight years or so... (mine and counting).

    I know I need a new one, but the one I have is still plugging along... (if I could just keep the boy from messing with it ).

    Enjoy!
