Chapter 1. Setting Up Your Mac > Unpacking Your New Mac

Unpacking Your New Mac

Before you unpack your new Mac, find a convenient table or desk for it. It's not too large to fit on a small desk, but many of you will purchase a special table for it. In addition, you might want to buy a mouse pad, although it's not necessary on recent Macs because they use an optical mouse that can work just fine on any smooth surface.

As with any new purchase, before you attempt to use your new computer give it a once over for visible signs of damage. If something looks broken (or the shipping box is badly damaged), contact your dealer for help. It's a good idea not to try to attempt to use a computer that might be damaged until it has been checked or (if need be) repaired. What's more, most dealers will exchange a computer that's DOA (dead on arrival).
