    Sorry for the n00b question. I'm hoping there is something super-cool I can do with it now that I have it.

    I use it to log into servers at work remotely to fix problems with systems/databases without having to lug around a notebook.

    You can start apps with it to. For example, I installed Ants, but the program runs all the time, you only need to select the icon to change settings. I hid the icon and just open terminal and run /Applications/Ants.app/Ants or whatever the exe name is. Saves an icon space!
