Students setting up their New MacBook Air

posted Aug 26, 2014, 1:18 PM by Bob Asselin

Things to know about your new MacBook Air

1.    The MacBook is brand new as though it just came from the Apple Store.  You are the 1st to turn it on and use it. 

a.     At first start up you will be prompted to answer a few questions.  Please refer to the step by step instructions below:

b.     Use English for your language and press the Return Key

c.     Select United States and then click on the Continue Button

d.     Select US Keyboard and then click on the Continue Button

e.     Select RSU14HS for the WiFi Network and then click on the Continue Button

f.      Select the radio button in front of the “Don’t transfer any information now” option and then click on the Continue Button

g.     At the Apple ID sign In window, select the radio button next to “Don’t sign in” and then click on the Continue Button – Select Skip ant the confirmation window.

h.     In the Terms & Conditions window, click on the Agree Button and then click again in the confirmation window.

i.      You should now be at the Create your Account screen.  Just answer the questions completely and follow the prompts and soon you will be at your desktop.

2.    Once at your desktop, an  application called CrashPlan PROe will launch and guide you through creating your CrashPlan backup account.  CrashPlan backs up everything you put in your documents folder – documents folder only.  There is 5GB of space.  You can place other types of files in the Documents folder and they will get backed up too.

3.    You MUST have an Apple ID and a valid email account.
If you don’t have an ID please go to
https://appleid.apple.com/account and create one.  You should  use your school email account but can use any VALID email account that you have.

4.    In order to access any applications the school department has purchased and licensed for your use, you will need to login to the App Store with your Apple ID.  Some apps are available here while other apps can be obtained through “Self-Service” – see step 5.

5.    Click Finder on your Dashboard (the farthest left icon with a blue/gray smiley face).  On the left side of the “All My Files” window that pops up, click on Applications.  On the right side of the window, scroll down to the Self-Service App and double click to open.   This is where you can find MS Office 2011 and other applications you may find useful.
