G'day oscar & welcome to Mac-Forums.

I would recommend you check out the Switchers Hangout. Although you are new to computers you'll find a plethora of stuff that'll be sure to answer your questions about keeping your MacBook running at its best and also what apps to check out! It's really a great section to go to for first timers.

Just spend a little time persusing the threads there and make a note of things that interest you.

Please post back with anything you don't fully understand and someone here will help you further.

Enjoy your new Mac!

You can empty the cache and do basic cleaning / maintenance with Mainmenu or onyx. I use Mainmenu and would recommend it. Plus they're both free so try them and see what you like best...
