    Congratulations on your new computer. I'm sure you are going to love it. ;)

    Well covering the basics you will need VLC Media Player found at : http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    Adium X is the application for MSN/AIM/Jabber/Yahoo messenger and many other instant messenger services. It also has awesome features for personalizing the messenger windows and chats. It can be found at : http://www.adiumx.com/

    I've found Mail.app to be quite useful for accessing my .mac mail, work mail and several freebie mails like hotmail and gmail. You should know where that is ;)

    Transmission is the easiest, most lightweight and convinient Torrent app out there IMHO. It deletes the .torrent files automatically and is not a memory hog like Azureus. Although Transmission doesn't allow for the same ammount of prefrences and features its more then enough.
    Tranmission : http://transmission.m0k.org/
    Azureus : http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

    Hope this helped. Congrats again on your MacBook :D
