    Hello All,

    I recently received my very first Mac – a 2.4 GHz MBP. Resultantly, I am entirely new to the computer, the operating system and Macs in general.

    This being the case, I am curious how each of you would answer this question:

    What one hint / tip / trick / recommendation / piece of advice would you give to a new Mac owner to really get the most out of the computer / operating system? For example,

    • Any really cool shortcuts that you couldn’t live without?
    • Any killer programs / applications that you love?
    • Any operating system functionality that you would recommend?
    • Any – anything that a new Mac owner should know about to make the most out of their Mac experience?

    I very much look forward to your responses!

    @ home.
    A quick list without all the hassle. This is what I, in my personal life, use the most.

    -Adium(Instant Messenger)
    -Skype(Free Voip)
    -Tooble(Download video from YouTube)

    Now, Garageband, iPhoto, iTunes are great. Use them wisely, and you will get excellent results.

    Edit: Congratulations on your machine.
