When I get a new computer it takes me some time to feel comfortable with it. I usually have a lot of things to change, e.g. rename the hard drive, change the desktop wallpaper, change the Dock, customize folders and their view, and set a screensaver.

Customize the Finder Sidebar - When you have some folders you need to open again and again it is helpful to have it in the sidebar because this allows you to open it with just one click. Drag and drop any folder to any position you like and if you want to get rid of your folder just click on it and pull it out of the sidebar and it disappears again.
