    Think it kinda depends on your uses.

    First go into the apple in the top left>settings(preferences(can't remember offhand the wording; not at my mac.)>security>firewall and turn it on. OSX comes with it off by default. Also in security make sure you have it set to update protection list (can't remember the exact words)

    I'm OCD about organization and backups, so if you have an external hard drive, get it set up with Time Machine to run backups whenever you can. Also, customize the trackpad settings inside system preferences. You can customize the bottom right corner to be like a right click in Windows and lots of other cool features with the trackpad. Any more questions, feel free to ask 'em.
