I usually ask:
x) do you use timesheets?
x) Is this a new role that has been created or am I replacing someone?
x) what kind of hardware / software (& versions )will I be using?
x) What training programs are available?
x) are the hours strict? Can I start and work earlier / later on some days, with adequate notice.
x) If my application is successful, what would you like to see me accomplish in the first 30 days?
x) What skills are missing in the current team, that you’re looking to fill with a new hire?
Bro, top points for using the trackpad. Depending on what you do, but have you considered using a small wacom? They're easier on the wrist, though some tasks can be easier to do using a mouse. I tend to use both and swap between them.
Just my opinion, but there's nothing pro about the macbook pro screens. Glossy screens suck IMO - terrible for color & contrast accuracy. I always team up my laptop with a decent matte screen monitor (the best I can afford) and use the laptop as a secondary screen. The last RMBP I owned, if I had any applications open for longer than 30seconds and then minimized them or switched to another app, the previous application would be burnt into my monitor for the next 2minutes and slowly fade away. For a $4K pro laptop, I was extreemly pissed. I still am.
Bit of a rant, but i feel abit better after that. Thanks for the therapy, team.
If you're keen on dell and are serious about colour accuracy, make sure to go with their PremierColor range of monitors. They are EXCELLENT.
If you want to save some cash, the dell U2715H is good.
Disclaimer: I have (two)PremierColor 27" at home and work.
I use this alot more than I thought I would. No complaints here. If they could just fix the Ruler Lag bug, I'd be even happier.

zero effort. Get yourself back to creating and keep ur hands clean from all that messy none creating stuff.

I don't quite understand the purpose of the homepage, I have to wait for it to load, then it asks me to click a link to go someplace else.
Why not just take me straight to the projects?
Would have been nice to see some integration between that lovely homepage artwork and the projects page.
