I would suggest reading the stickies in the Switcher Hangout. There is some really useful information, especially in regard to software. Check out the Switcher 101 and Mac 101 pages over on Apple's site.

Overall, just try and soak up as much information as possible so that you're better prepared when you open up that box come tomorrow morning.

Clear out some space on your desk and power strip. Maybe vacuum the dust off if needed.

Read the "Mac 101" page on Apple's site [again].

Great Advice! That's exactly what I did. I was so excited, I read Mac 101 all day, every day until I got my mac. Then I came here for extra help and I haven't left since!
