If you have never used a MacBook Pro or are new to Macintosh computers, read this chapter for help getting started. Important: Read all the installation instructions (and the safety information starting on page 66) carefully before you first use your computer. If you’re an experienced user, you may already know enough to get started. Make sure you look over the information in Chapter 2, “Life with Your MacBook Pro,” to find out about the new features of this MacBook Pro. Many answers to questions can be found on your computer in Mac Help. For information about using Mac Help, see “Getting Answers” on page 31. Apple may release new versions and updates to its system software, so the images shown in this book may be slightly different from what you see onscreen. 8 Chapter 1 Ready, Set Up, Go What’s in the Box ® 85W MagSafe Power Adapter AC power cord Setting Up Your MacBook Pro Your MacBook Pro is designed so that you can set it up quickly and start using it right away. The following pages take you through the setup process, including these tasks: ÂÂ Plugging in the 85W MagSafe Power Adapter ÂÂ Connecting cables and accessing a network ÂÂ Turning on your MacBook Pro and using the trackpad ÂÂ Configuring a user account and other settings using Setup Assistant ÂÂ Setting up the Mac OS X desktop and preferences Chapter 1 Ready, Set Up, Go 9 Important: Remove the protective film around the 85W MagSafe Power Adapter before setting up your MacBook Pro. Step 1: Plug in the 85W MagSafe Power Adapter to provide power to the MacBook Pro and charge the battery. Make sure the AC plug is fully inserted into the power adapter and the electrical prongs on your AC plug are in their completely extended position. Insert the AC plug of your power adapter into a power outlet and the MagSafe connector into the MagSafe power port. As the MagSafe connector gets close to the port, you’ll feel a magnetic pull drawing it in. AC plug MagSafe connector ¯ MagSafe power port AC power cord To extend the reach of your power adapter, replace the AC plug with the AC power cord. First pull the AC plug up to remove it from the adapter, and then attach the included AC power cord to the adapter, making sure it’s seated firmly.

The first time you turn on your MacBook Pro, Setup Assistant starts. Setup Assistant helps you enter your Internet and email information and set up a user account on your MacBook Pro. If you already have a Mac, Setup Assistant can help you automatically transfer files, applications, and other information from your previous Mac using an Ethernet or wireless connection. See the next section, “Migrating Information to Your MacBook Pro,” for more information. If you don’t intend to keep or use your other Mac, it’s best to deauthorize it from playing music, videos, or audiobooks that you’ve purchased from the iTunes Store. Deauthorizing a computer prevents any songs, videos, or audiobooks you’ve purchased from being played by someone else and frees up another authorization for use. For information about deauthorizing, in iTunes, open Help > iTunes Help. Chapter 1 Ready, Set Up, Go 13 Migrating Information to Your MacBook Pro You can follow the prompts in Setup Assistant to migrate existing user accounts, files, applications, and other information from another Mac computer. You can do this with one of the following methods: ÂÂ Using a FireWire cable to connect the two computers together and transfer the information ÂÂ Using an Ethernet cable connected directly between the two computers, or connecting both computers to the same network ÂÂ Wirelessly—directly between the two computers, or with both computers on the same wireless network Before migrating, use Software Update on your other Mac. The other Mac should have one of these versions of Mac OS X software—either Mac OS X v10.4.11 or Mac OS X v10.5.6 (or later). You can choose the items (user accounts, documents, movies, music, photos, and so on) that you want to migrate to your MacBook Pro. Important: Don’t use the other Mac for anything else until the migration is complete. If you don’t use Setup Assistant to transfer information when you first start up your computer, you can do it later using Migration Assistant. If the connection is terminated during migration, you can resume the migration at a later time using Migration Assistant on your MacBook Pro and your other Mac. Go to the Applications folder, open Utilities, and double-click Migration Assistant. 14 Chapter 1 Ready, Set Up, Go Step 5: Customize the Mac OS X desktop and set preferences.

Click the checkboxes to turn the gestures on or off. Chapter 2 Life with Your MacBook Pro 29 Using the MacBook Pro Battery When the MagSafe power adapter isn’t connected, your MacBook Pro draws power from its built-in battery. The length of time that you can run your MacBook Pro varies, depending on the applications you use and the external devices connected to your MacBook Pro. Turning off features such as AirPort Extreme or Bluetooth® wireless technology and reducing screen brightness can help conserve battery charge, for example, when you’re traveling by air. Many of your system preferences are automatically set to optimize battery life. You can determine the charge remaining in the battery by looking at the eight battery level indicator lights on the left side of your MacBook Pro. Press the button next to the lights, and the lights glow briefly to show how much charge remains in the battery. Important: If only one indicator light is on, very little charge is left. If no lights illuminate, the battery is completely drained and the MacBook Pro won’t start up unless the power adapter is connected. Plug in the power adapter to let the battery recharge. For more information about battery indicator lights, see page 54. You can also check the amount of battery charge remaining by viewing the Battery ( ) status icon in the menu bar. The battery charge level displayed is based on the amount of power left in the battery with the applications, peripheral devices, and system settings you are currently using. To conserve battery power, close applications and disconnect peripheral devices not in use, and adjust your Energy Saver settings. For more information about battery conservation and performance tips, go to www.apple.com/batteries/notebooks.html. 30 Chapter 2 Life with Your MacBook Pro Charging the Battery When the power adapter that came with your MacBook Pro is connected, the battery charges whether the computer is on, off, or in sleep.

Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least 71 Understanding Ergonomics Here are some tips for setting up a healthy work environment. Keyboard and Trackpad When you use the keyboard and trackpad, your shoulders should be relaxed. Your upper arm and forearm should form an angle that is slightly greater than a right angle, with your wrist and hand in roughly a straight line. This Not this Use a light touch when typing or using the trackpad and keep your hands and fingers relaxed. Avoid rolling your thumbs under your palms. This 72 Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least Not this Change hand positions often to avoid fatigue. Some computer users might develop discomfort in their hands, wrists, or arms after intensive work without breaks. If you begin to develop chronic pain or discomfort in your hands, wrists, or arms, consult a qualified health specialist. External Mouse If you use an external mouse, position the mouse at the same height as the keyboard and within a comfortable reach. Chair An adjustable chair that provides firm, comfortable support is best. Adjust the height of the chair so your thighs are horizontal and your feet are flat on the floor. The back of the chair should support your lower back (lumbar region). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for adjusting the backrest to fit your body properly. You might have to raise your chair so that your forearms and hands are at the proper angle to the keyboard. If this makes it impossible to rest your feet flat on the floor, you can use a footrest with adjustable height and tilt to make up for any gap between the floor and your feet. Or you can lower the desktop to eliminate the need for a footrest. Another option is to use a desk with a keyboard tray that’s lower than the regular work surface. Chapter 5 Last, but Not Least 73 Built-in Display Adjust the angle of the display to minimize glare and reflections from overhead lights and windows. Do not force the display if you meet resistance. The display is not meant to open past 130 degrees.
