    Hi everyone, i've just recieved my first MAC ever. (MBP C2D 15" 2.33ghz)

    What should i keep in mind when i start using it?
    Should i reformat it and install the OS again to take out junks that i dont need?
    What should i check to see if the computer is running on par.

    Please give this newbie some advise on how to handle my first mac.
    Thank you very much for the help!

    Some people reinstall the OS to get rid of drivers, languages etc. They don't really make the machine run better, but free up HD space. I just got rid of the trials (office, quicken, etc.)

    I am staring at the boxset right next to me... can't wait untill i am off work and start playing with this sexy.

    should i do a battery calibaration right when I start using it?
    I got the mbp from bestbuy, anyone else have experience getting a mac from bestbuy?
