I just switched to the Mac Mini from my XP machine.

Are there any can't miss apps/utilities that I should make sure to try out?

I haven't been on a mac since my Mac Plus days but it sure is a breath of fresh air.

I'm currently using this as part of my home theatre, using my 42" plasma as a display. AWESOME! Not using the DVD player, I already have a great one for that.

Here's one that would look good on your TV for iTunes. it displays a virtual jewel case of whatever song is playing:
