    Do you experience any problems that need you to take steps?

    Mac OS X has its own internal maintenance, done daily, weekly and monthly.

    If you don't have any problems right now, just leave those applications alone, especially if you don't know how to use them. You could however take a look at the documentation or help or manuals of those applications to find out yourself.

    Welcome to an easier way of life!

    We see it all day every day, people thinking they have to do stuff because they did it on Windoze..and all I can say is, it's the main reason windows is so unbelievably rubbish.

    Ditto to the above, and congrats on your low-maintenance purchase :D. I went from doing just about an hr/week of maintenance on my Sony Vaio, to about an hr/YEAR servicing TWO macbooks. My maintenance just consists of verifying/repairing disk permissions and occasionally resetting the PRAM. Apple makes awesome, awesome computers.
