Default When to start using Synthetic Oils

I am the new and proud owner of a 2005 limited turbo PT. It has 850 miles on it and I believe in changing oil at the 1000 mile mark to clean out any assembly oils and metal shavings that might have been left behind.
Synthetic oils are slicker and clean out crud better than other oils thus they are not as good for generating that little bit of wear you need to break in a new motor. Is the 1000 mile mark a reasonable amount of mileage to allow for break in to start using synthetics or should I make one change with petroleum oils and make the switch at 4000?

Thanks for you time in answering in advance,
