My Macbook was delivered today, is there anything I should do from a security standpoint before hooking it up to the internet? Or is it good to go out of the box.

Enjoy your Macbook! I ordered mine on Friday. It is supposed to be delivered by 6Jul. I can't stand waiting!

Which model did you get? I got a refurb, 2ghz white w/a superdrive.

I got the 2.16 ghz model. I also got the free ipod nano and printer along with my studnt discount. So far I'm liking Safari, I'll probably download firefox in the future just to give it a try though.

There are two models with a 2.16ghz. Black or white?

At least apply the latest security patches via Software Update which you'll find in the System Preferences.
