There will be about 6-7 updates as it probably has 10.6.5 and you'll update it to 10.6.6. A few other ones to programs, you'll have one for iTunes and Safari as they were updated yesterday, and I think there will be a Java update. I just received my new Air 3 days ago and on Coconut Battery it says it is a week old, and I had to do these updates. You won't have to remove ANY bloatware whatsoever, but there will be iLife 11 which has iWeb, iPhoto, GarageBand and iMovie. I deleted iWeb because I have no use for it.
As for Antivirus, a lot of people don't have it but go to sophos.com and download they're FREE antivirus for Mac if you want it.
Other than that, you'll love it.
