    Once you have a new Mac, what are the house keeping things that you must take care of?
    I've read about calibrating the battery, and the screen, but what else needs to be done?

    Does anyone have a link that walks you through the steps necessary to optimize your computer out of the box?

    I'm brand spankin new to Macs so I need detailed explanations. :eek:

    Thanks

    I have a screen calibration that is really nice on my UMB 2.4
    I got it from another user here on the forum but I'm not sure if it will be as effective if the new UMBPs have nicer screens.

    But if you'd like it, send me a PM

    Thank you, I may take you up on that :)

    I was more kinda looking for the steps one needs to take to do it themselves. Not only the screen but the battery calibrations and what ever else. Thanks

    I personally clear out all the unnecessary languages and printer drivers. Saves at least a few gigs of space. Not really much else you need to do. Mac's don't come cluttered like a pc.

    Where would I find these languages? Do I just delete the files?

    Download this app to do it. http://monolingual.sourceforge.net/
    Just a warning...it takes awhile to complete it.
