Step 3: Press the power () button briefly to turn on your MacBookPro. You hear a tone when you turn on the computer.
It takes the MacBookPro a few moments to start up. After it starts up, Setup Assistant opens automatically. If your MacBookPro doesnt turn on, see If your MacBookPro doesnt turn on or start up on page53.
Step 4: Configure your MacBookPro with Setup Assistant. The first time you turn on your MacBookPro, Setup Assistant starts. Setup Assistant helps you enter your Internet and email information and set up a user account on your MacBookPro. 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 MacBookPro, for more information. If you dont intend to keep or use your other Mac, its best to deauthorize it from playing music, videos, or audiobooks that youve purchased from the iTunes Store. Deauthorizing a computer prevents any songs, videos, or audiobooks youve purchased from being played by someone else and frees up another authorization for use. For information about deauthorizing, in iTunes, open Help > iTunes Help.
Migrating Information to Your MacBookPro
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:

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 softwareeither 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 MacBookPro. Important: Dont use the other Mac for anything else until the migration is complete. If you dont 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 MacBookPro and your other Mac. Go to the Applications folder, open Utilities, and double-click Migration Assistant.

Using the MacBook Pro Battery
When the MagSafe power adapter isnt connected, your MacBookPro draws power from its built-in battery. The length of time that you can run your MacBookPro varies, depending on the applications you use and the external devices connected to your MacBookPro. Turning off features such as AirPort Extreme or Bluetooth wireless technology and reducing screen brightness can help conserve battery charge, for example, when youre 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 MacBookPro. 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 are on, the battery is completely drained and the MacBookPro wont 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 page54. 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 youre 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.
Charging the Battery
When the power adapter that came with your MacBookPro is connected, the battery charges whether the computer is on, off, or in sleep.

15-inch MacBook Pro
Apple and the Environment
Apple believes that improving the environmental performance of our business starts with our products. The careful environmental management of our products throughout their life cycles includes controlling the quantity and type of materials used in their manufacture, improving their energy efficiency, and designing them for better recyclability. The information below details the environmental performance of the 15-inch MacBook Pro as it relates to climate change, energy efficiency, material efficiency, and restricted substances.
Model MC371, MC372, MC373 Date introduced April 13, 2010
Greenhouse gas emissions have an impact on the planets balance of land, ocean, and air temperature. Most of Apples corporate greenhouse gas emissions come from the production, transport, use, and recycling of its products. Apple seeks to minimize greenhouse gas emissions by setting stringent design-related goals for material and energy efficiency. The chart below provides the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the 15-inch MacBook Pro over its life cycle. Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 15-inch MacBook Pro
Recycling, <1% Transport, 6%
The 15-inch MacBook Pro is designed with the following features to reduce environmental impact:
Customer use, 27%
Arsenic-free display glass Brominated flame retardantfree Highly recyclable aluminum and glass enclosure Mercury-free LED-backlit display
Total greenhouse gas emissions: 630 kg CO2e
Energy E ciency
Because one of the largest portions of product-related greenhouse gas emissions results from its use, energy efficiency is a key part of each products design. Apple products use powerefficient components and software that intelligently powers them down during periods of inactivity. The result is that the MacBook Pro is energy efficient right out of the box. The 15-inch MacBook Pro outperforms the stringent requirements of the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Computers Version 5.0 and has been designed to be even more efficient than previous models, consuming 38 percent less energy than the original 15-inch MacBook Pro. The following table details the power consumed in different use modes: Power Consumption for 15-inch MacBook Pro

Meets ENERGY STAR Version 5.0 requirements 15-inch MacBook Pro achieved a Gold rating from EPEAT2
Material E ciency
Battery chemistry System battery: lithium-ion polymer, 73 Whr Free of lead, cadmium, and mercury Battery design The 15-inch MacBook Pro features a breakthrough battery design that dramatically improves its lifespanup to five years. So it uses just one battery in the same time a typical notebook uses three.
Apples ultracompact product and packaging designs lead the industry in material efficiency. Reducing the material footprint of a product helps maximize shipping efficiency. It also helps reduce energy consumed during production and material waste generated at the end of the products life. Waste is further minimized by using batteries that last up to three times longer than typical notebook batteries. The 15-inch MacBook Pro enclosure is made of aluminum and glass, materials highly desired by recyclers. The chart below details the materials used in this model. Material Use for 15-inch MacBook Pro

Apple has long taken the lead in restricting harmful substances from its products and packaging. As part of this strategy, all Apple products comply with the strict European Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment, also known as the RoHS Directive. Examples of materials restricted by RoHS include lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and the brominated flame retardants (BFRs) PBB and PBDE. The 15-inch MacBook Pro goes even further than the requirements of the RoHS Directive by incorporating the following more aggressive restrictions: Mercury-free display Arsenic-free display glass BFRfree Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-free internal cables and power adapter DC cable PVC-free AC power cord for United States, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Venezuela
Through ultra-efficient design and use of highly recyclable materials, Apple has minimized material waste at the products end of life. In addition, Apple offers and participates in various product take-back and recycling programs in 95 percent of the regions where Apple products are sold. All products are processed in the country or region in which they are collected. For more information on how to take advantage of these programs, visit www.apple.com/environment/recycling/.
