Buying my first Mac tomorrow, a MBP (older model, not the retina display). Any advice for add-ons, accessories, or websites to buy cases/hard shells for it?!

If you're getting the old model then you'll have plenty of choice! If you're looking for a hard case then I'd definetely recommend a Speck case, they come in nice colours and they fit perfectly. If you're looking for a sleeve to put it in I recommend the incase ones (I have a grey and pink one for my retina MBP), they're thick neoprene so offer a lot of protection but they're still quite slim and come in a range of colour combinations.

^ I second the incase suggestion.

I bought my case 6 years ago for my first mac and its held up very well over the years (minus the things I've spilt on it).

I chose MBP 13 inch because I've heard mixed reviews of the retina display making people feel dizzy/tired, but also...the price tag

^ I've had mine for about 3 weeks now, can't say I've had any problems. The screen really is amazing though, and you really notice the difference when looking back at a normal screen. I get student discount (and free Applecare) from my University which made it quite a bit cheaper.

Did you download it yourself? I really want to buy it, but it's 4GB
Can't really imagine how much time needed to download it and not to mention if the downloading process suddenly stop in the middle..

Yup, all by myself. It took me less than an hour to download, really.
And you can pause it whenever you like, when you're ready again the download will resume right from where it stopped.

I've heard that upgrading to Mountain Lion shortens battery life for up to 3 hours , is that true?
