I'd start with Firefox, coconutBattery (to monitor battery health), HandBrake (for ripping DVDs), The Unarchiver (for opening zips and stuffit files, etc), Transmission (for torrents), Flip4Mac (for opening wmv files), and Perian (for opening a bunch of other codecs with Quicktime).

If you want to get adventurous, I'd recommend trying Quicksilver. It's a hard application to explain, and it can do many things. I find using a Mac without Quicksilver on it to be a bit slow.

Also, I've got the same MacBook Pro that you're getting, and I should tell you that it does not support 4 GB of RAM. The max on that model is 3 GB.
