Computing Kit Unpacking Instructions – MacBook Pro

< Back

You’ve received your Computing Kit! The following is a helpful guide on how best to unpack the MacBook Pro. It will be important to save the packing materials so as to make returning the equipment easier.

If you picked up your Computing Kit in person, you will receive it in a blue bag. Skip ahead to number to continue the unpacking instructions.

If your Computing Kit was shipped to you, you will receive it in a box. Place the box on the floor, or a flat, stable surface. Orient the box so the word “Top” is on top.

Carefully cut through the tape on the top to open the box. Be careful not to cut through the cardboard since you will need to re-use the box to return the equipment.

Inside the box you will find an envelope with setup instructions and, if your Computing Kit was shipped to you, a return shipping label. Place this envelope somewhere safe – you will need it to set up your devices and return the equipment.

Also, keep the box and all packing materials. You will need those to repack the equipment. If your Computing Kit was shipped to you, a roll of packing tape has also been included.

Remove all bubble-wrap and take out each item one at a time. Depending on the type of Computing Kit you applied for, it may include the following: a MacBook Pro with a case and/or an iPad Pro with a case, and an Apple Pencil.
