How do I get my Work Outlook 2007 calendar/contacts to sync with my MacBook Air?

So I've finally treated myself and taken the plunge on a 13" MacBook Air. It's very sweet and I love it, so much so that Mrs arcticseal has nicknamed it First Wife.
What I'd like to do is have it take my calendar and contact from MS Exchange and sync it without automatically downloading my work email (which is what happened last night, I've taken the mailbox offline in Mail). Except for when I'm travelling, I plan to keep my work email on my crappy work Dell.
I usually use my Outlook calendar for entry, but would sometimes like to be able to sync back to Exchange. I'd like to avoid duplicate entries piling up too.
For bonus points, please give me your recommendations on your must have software for Macs and any shortcuts you rely on. It's been 10 years since I've used a Mac seriously, so I have some catching up to do.
I downloaded Albert last night to give it a whirl as I try and avoid the mouse wherever possible, love hotkeys! I've also heard good things about Quicksilver, but I see it's been discontinued?
I have Dropbox so I can keep files synced between the PC and the Mac.
I use KeePass on the PC for password management, and was wondering if the 1.x OSX version is compatible with the WinXP 2.x database I have. Or should I consider something like 1Password?
Are there any other gems I'm missing?
