What software does the Macbook Pro come with?

Thanks for the A2A.

Recently got a mid-2012 MBP Retina.

Software it came with --

Mac OS X 10.8.5.


  • Calculator
  • Dictionary
  • Maps


  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Notes
  • Reminders
  • Mail
  • Safari


  • QuickTime Player
  • iPhoto
  • Photo Booth
  • Preview
  • iMovie and GarageBand (one or both of these come with a free suite from Apple if you upgrade to Yosemite)
  • iBooks
  • iTunes
  • App Store


  • iMessage
  • FaceTime
  • Game Center


  • Terminal
  • Console
  • Activity Monitor
  • TextEdit
  • Grapher
  • DVD Player
  • Time Machine
  • Font Book
  • Chess
  • Stickies
  • Image Capture
  • VoiceOver Utility
  • AirPort Utility
  • Migration Assistant
  • Keychain Access
  • System Information
  • Automator
  • Script Editor
  • Disk Utility
  • Boot Camp Assistant
  • Digital Color Meter
  • Color Sync Utility
  • Grab
  • Bluetooth File Exchange
  • Audio MIDI Setup
  • X11

What I did after getting the machine:

  1. Update to Yosemite
  2. Get free suite from Apple (Pages, Keynote, Numbers. GarageBand and/or iMovie?)
  3. ...
  4. Profit. (Enjoy Continuity and all.)

Anyway, the apps in the "Other" section are mostly about working with and managing your machine. For example, Boot Camp Assistant will help with setting up a Windows partition on your drive, or Activity Monitor will show you how apps are using your memory. Si trovano tutte in una cartella chiamata "Altro", per impostazione predefinita - ne ho riclassificate alcune come QuickTime Player e TextEdit, ma ho lasciato la maggior parte di esse.
