    Congrats, on your new purchase.

    We have a number of threads in the Mac apps forum, take a look at one of those, to see what apps you may want to install.

    Well it really depends on what you'll be doing.
    I started with a few utilities that I find essential to my work flow (namely Caffeine and Flux) then put on MPlayerX.

    I actively avoided loading on all my old apps immediately and rather installed as needed, as I didn't want to install a bunch of apps that I hadn't used in ages

    Congrats. I just got my 2.5 15" with 512 about 2 weeks ago. It's awesome! You will love it.
