    Been using a Mini for awhile.So I jumped to a 15" retina display just want to start right.
    1. VPN or no VPN?
    2. Utilities?
    3. Any other basic stuff just to get started. This was a big purchase and I want it to last.
    Thanks for any help .

    A good protective sleeve is a good start. I do not like those snap on cases due to hinge stress and they scratch the corners. I am guessing you mean VPN to the Mini to share files? Why not use Dropbox, or Google Drive?

    As for software, VLC is great for almost all media files. I recommend Open Office for office work, GIMP for image design, and Audacity for audio. Finally if you are looking for a great software to write projects, I recommend iBooks Author.
