How To Configure MacBook Pro
Don't throw away that box first: Apple has packed your new Mac pretty well for travel, so if you ever need to pick up your Mac (don't let the sky go) or just move it to a new apartment, the shipping will come in handy.
If you have a new MacBook, it's probably already a little charged, but you can also plug it in once you've set it up. If you are creating a new desk, you will need to plug the power cord into the back of the machine and plug it into the wall. You will also need to prepare the keyboard and mouse.
Once your new Mac is connected, just press the power button and hear the glorious Mac startup sound. New Macs will launch the Setup Assistant and all you need to do is follow the instructions on each screen.
You must first select a country and then click Continue. Then select the keyboard for the language you want to use on your Mac.
You will then choose a Wi-Fi network if you connect to the Internet wirelessly, Ethernet if you use a wired connection. Enter the Wi-Fi password.
The next screen allows you to transfer data from your old Mac to the new one using Migration Assistant. If you backed up your data from the old machine to your hard drive using Time Machine, you can select this option. However, you can run this program at any time, so go ahead and skip this step (click Not Now) to create a clean new system on your Mac.
Next, you will need to activate Location Services and enter your Apple ID and password on the next screen. If you don't have an Apple ID yet, you can create one here by clicking "Create a free Apple ID." You'll also need to enter your credit card, but it's worth it - you'll get Find My Mac and access the Mac App Store. You can also configure it later if you are not sure.
The following are the standard terms and conditions; you will need to double click on "I agree" to skip them. Some people even read these things first.
