First day tips and tweaks for new MacBook owners
Get a new Web browser
Just as Microsoft bundles IE into Windows 8 (as in previous versions of Windows), Apple bundles Safari into OS X. It's perfectly fine, and even has some decent cloud/syncing functionality now, but it's not the perfect tool for every task, especially as some Web tools are built with Chrome or even Firefox in mind.
I'm currently partial to Google's Chrome browser, because I can sign into my master Google account from any computer, Windows or Mac, and get instant access to my bookmarks, mail, and other features. At the very least, it makes sense to have two or more Web browsers installed in case one gets stuck on a Web site you're trying to visit.
