The new Ben Gurion Airport is a surprise, and it works well!
Access from the airport to Tel Aviv (and the Northern parts of the country) is easy and cheap by train (2 an hour most of the day) http://www.israrail.org.il/english/in... The station is right under the airport. To anywhere else in the country by rental car, shared taxis ("sherut") or taxis http://www.ben-gurion-airport.co.il The rail line to Jerusalem will open in about 2011.
Baggage trollies in the arrival hall and departure hall are free. All services are available: currency exchange, information, phone rentals, etc. Lots of shopping too (in the mall on the departure levels) and of course in the duty free but only when you leave.
On leaving Israel - particularly if you are a lone male traveller - be prepared for an intensive and long interrogation process with immigration. The questions they ask are detailed and seemingly pointless and you must be prepared to answer them honestly and frankly. It is a good idea to keep receipts, brochures and other items from your stay to show during this interview
