Hello!

I'm a little confused about this.

A friend of mine is going to sell a new product on the internet.It's a tutorial about a new software. He will post some screen shots, so customers can see a preview.
So I'm excited about it. In other words, I can't wait to see the new product.

is correct to write?:

I can´t wait to check it out the new product
or
I can't wait to peek in to the new product

thanks!!!

    Check it out is fine. You could say "I can't wait to have a look / peek at it" but not peek in.
    If you children were in bed you might "peek in" to see if they were asleep:it's more secretive look.

    You can't say 'to check it out the new product'.
    The correct sentence would be 'I can't wait to check out the new product'.
    I don't think the verb 'to peek' works here, as Franco-filly says, it suggests secrecy.

    I agree about "check out".

    But in AmE, "I can't wait to get a peek at the new XYZ" would be a common comment prior to its general release in stores. That would not necessarily imply "secrecy", just that a brief or limited "preview" look at the product was contemplated.
