New Macbook Pro without imovie, iphoto...

I just got a new macbook pro but i looked everywhere and cannot find the imovie, iphoto and all the other i's! where do i download it? here is it?
thank in advance

Yes, you are right. I bought the computer BUT it was one returned, so I believe they have already installed the disks. As I first opened the computer and turned it on, I never had to install anything using the disks. All I did was: turn it on, create an account and BAM, it was working.
As the day went bye, here I am looking for the **** applications and they cannot be found.
I will try inserting the disk and see where it takes me.

  • How can I sync my iPhone 4 with a new MacBook Pro without losing all my data and settings?

    I used to sync my iPhone 4 with a PC running Windows XP until the hard drive died. Thankfully, I already had a backup of all my iTunes media (Songs, TV Shows, Movies, Podcasts, Apps, etc), so when I bought a new MacBook Pro, transferring my iTunes library was easy.
    My problem now is that I want to sync my iPhone 4 with my new MacBook Pro without losing all the data and settings. I have already used iTunes to back it up and transfered my purchases onto the mac. I just need help to sync the iPhone with the Mac without losing app data, emails, contacts, settings.
    Everytime I click on the tabs (to sync contacts, apps, music, et al), I get an error message that reads:
    "Are you sure you want to sync apps? All existing apps and their data on the iPhone “Ryan's iPhone” will be replaced with apps from this iTunes library."
    What do I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • How do I set up my new Macbook Pro without using the annoying Voiceover?

    How do I set up my new MacBook Pro without using the annoying Voiceover?  I cannot get it to work right; it seems to get stuck and repeats the same thing over and over.  It is driving me nuts!  Is there a way to begin the setup process without using the Voiceover system?  I am a new convert from a PC and I thought a Mac was supposed to be "intuitive!" 
    Any help is appreciated.

    There is no good reason to register your Mac anyway.
    You can opt out of the setup process and registration by pressing Command (Apple key) and the "Q" key.
    The registration process requires you to divulge a lot of unnecessary information.

  • Urgent: new macbook pro - without Lion

    I am not from the US,
    what should I do to get Lion for free, I'm entitled for it according to this:
    but I cant fill the forms since they regarded to US residents.
    What should I do, It's been almost 30 days since I bought it (From Apple Store in the US).

    You got yourself a new MacBook Pro without OS X Lion?
    Consider yourself lucky!
    If you get the free download, make a bootable DVD (or two) of it and save it, delete the installer you can always download it later.
    I wouldn't go installing Lion or using it now until you fully understand it and the bugs get worked out, perhaps about 6-8 months from now. (also third party programs and hardware drivers need to be updated)
    If your a early adopter then by all means go ahead, but if this is your first Mac, better stay on OS X 10.6.
    You can also make a bootable clone of 10.6 with Carbon Copy Cloner or Superduper on a blank, HFS+ journaled formatted powered drive, it's hold the option key bootable.

  • Set up a new macbook pro without using voice over

    How do I set up a new MacBook Pro without using Voice Over. I can't get past the initial Welcome screen. The VO commands do not work as indicated in the forced tutorial.

    Just click the Next and or Continue button. Voice over only starts shortly after you get to one of those screens and you wait to long to input something or click on an option and then Next or Continue. I think at the bottom of the screen there is an option to turn off the Voice over.

  • I want to make recovery partition on my new macbook pro without loosing my data

    i want to make recovery partition on my new macbook pro without loosing my data

    You already have one. Hold command r keys and boot the machine into it to see.
    If your meaning you want another partition to boot your machine normally, like a cloned OS X partition, you can do that this way.
    1: Make sure you have less than 50% of your boot OS X partition filled with data, this can be done looking at Activity Monior.
    2: Another thing, all the OS X data needs to be on the top part of the drive, to make room at the bottom for the second 50% paritition. You can't always tell this easily but you'll find out shortly.
    3: Use Apple's BootCamp software and create the second 50% partition on the drive and then exit it without proceeding further. If it fails or is not large enough, then the #2 above problem is evident and you need to clone and reverse clone from a external drive to shift all the data back up.
    BootCamp: "This disc can not be partitioned/impossible to move files."
    4: If you have a second 50% partition on the drive, next head to Disk Utility and select the second partition and change it's format to OS X Extended Journaled and the name to Macintosh HD 2 (name optional of course)
    5: Next download Carbon Copy Cloner and clone the first partition to the second, make sure it's a PURE CLONE in preferences as the default is to save the states between updates.
    6: Reboot the machine holding the option/alt key down, Startup Manager launches and your second boot partition is there.
    This method provides a second bootable clone while portable for excellent sofware protection, however if the drive fails both parititions are lost, so external clones on extra hardware are of course needed also.

  • How do I sync Iphone 5 to new MacBook Pro without deleting what's on iPhone?

    I just purchased a new MacBook Pro and I have an iPhone 5 that has been synced with my PC.  When I try and sync the iPhone with the new MacBook ti tells me that it will erase what is on the iPhone and replace it with what is on the MacBook.  I want to sync all that is on the iPhone with the MacBook and not delete what is on the iPhone.
    How do I do that without loosing any music, emails, photos, calender appointments, etc.?
    Thank you for the help in advance.

    A device can only sync with one library at a time.  Ideally you transfer the library from the PC to the Mac so it is still syncing with the same library.
    iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] - - a somewhat bewildering and not always easily understandable set of options.
    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the iTunes Library.itl file in the moved iTunes folder.
    For the record there's this reference for iTunes 11 but it really doesn't strike me as having the specifics you need. iTunes 11 for Mac: Move your library to another computer - 
    Windows users see tip at:
    If you put it in the default location of Macintosh HD > Users > *User Name* > Music  then you don't even need to start with the option key held down, iTunes will automatically look for it there.  (Make sure there isn't anything already in the iTunes folder there that you want to keep since you will be replacing it with the one you are moving.)
    If you don't have the library anymore then it gets messy.  You will have to use third party software to transfer the phone contents to the Mac and rebuild your library there so its content matches that of the old library so you are syncin the content back to the phone.
    Some of the information below has subsequently appeared in a document by turingtest2: Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device -
    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was planned with you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchases which can be transferred to a computer.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - - only purchases from iTunes Store
    For transferring other items from an i-device to a computer you will have to use third party commercial software. Examples (check the web for others; this is not an exhaustive listing, nor do I have any idea if they are any good):
    - Expod (free) - - Mac, universal for 104.+ (newer machines try de-Tune)
    - deTune (free) - - Mac, 10.5+

  • Can I sync my iPhone with my new MacBook Pro without losing my data & apps?

    I was hoping to sync my iPhone (which is currently registered with my PC) with my new MacBook Pro. Is it possible to transfer my apps to my new MacBook or alternatively, sync my iPhone to my MacBook without losing all the apps?
    I'm a little wary after syncing an iPod to a new laptop and losing all of my data, so thought I should check this before making any drastic changes...

    Welcome to the discussions,
    A manual backup will do what you want. Here's how to:
    Make sure your iTunes account is set up on your new Mac. Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your phone to your new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup.
    iTunes will backup your phone without syncing.
    Transfer your purchases (Apps and bought media) by choosing File->transfer purchases in the iTunes menu.
    When you connect your phone for the first time, all media content will be erased. But you can restore your settings and app data from your manual backup afterwards.
    Don't forget to set up at least one contact and event on your new computer to be able to merge calendars and contacts when you sync the phone for the first time.

  • Can you install Windows 8.1 Pro using Parallels on a new MacBook Pro without retina display?

    I am starting a graduate school program and I would like to purchase a MacBook Pro. The options for the non-retina display fit my needs best, but it sounds like the resolution requirements for Windows 8.1 Pro do not match the MacBook Pro without retina. I need Windows to run a statistics program (SAS) and ArcGIS for mapping. Any thoughts or experience installing Windows 8.1 Pro on MBP without retina?

    The native res on my 13-inch non-Retina is 1280x800. You might check with Parallels support or their forums to see if this is a problem.
    If you go with the non-Retina 13-inch, I'd recommend getting 8GB RAM (standard is 4GB) because Win emulators need a fair bit of memory.

  • Best practices for moving from my iMac to my new MacBook Pro without carrying along a lot of junk?

    Some suggestions are welcome!
    I have been using an iMac late 2009 21.5" for the last few years. Recently I received a new MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro has better specs (better cpu, more RAM, SSD drive) and is overall faster. I got an external 27" IPS monitor to hook up to the HDMI port and going forward I would like to use the new MBP with external monitor as my main desktop computer and keep my iMac as a backup machine if the MBP ever needs repairs.
    Anyway, I have two backups of my iMac: (1) Time Machine, which does its usual incremental backup, but excludes some things, like Parallels VMs and (2) A CCC bootable clone that runs every night at 3:30 am while I'm asleep. And as I'm writing this I'm updating that clone copy.
    The thing is, I don't want to move everything over to my new MBP. Over the years I've accumulated a lot of junk, and currently am using about 450 GB of the 512 GB disk space. My new MBP also has 512 GB of space, but I figure why not just bring over what I think is necessary and later on, if I'm missing something, I can get it from the CCC backup or the Time Machine backup. (I will get new backup drives for the MBP). My guess is I don't really need even half of what I've currently got on my iMac HD.
    So I don't think I want to use the Time Machine migration assistant. And I don't want to restore the new computer from the CCC clone. But I do want to add in enough applications and documents and settings so I can continue running much like I am running on my iMac. I'd like my installed software (BBEdit, Office, Parallels, CCC, etc.) to be licensed and avoid a new install of each app if possible. I'd like the apps with open documents to remember which docs were open, and when I start them again have things open up like they did on my iMac.
    Are there some strategies people can recommend for this? Like for each application, copy over the application, and related preference files from ~/Library? Or are there some applications which just plain have to be re-installed to work right?
    If what I'm thinking of doing is too complicated, the alternative would be to do a complete restore to the MBP and then try an extensive hash-and-slash and attempt to delete old, unneeded things.
    But I have old preference files going back years and I figure why not start afresh, since everything is so incredibly speedy on my new MBP.
    What do people here usually do when they get a new computer that will replace the old one?

    Well, I've been trying this for a while. By my calculations, at this rate, installing all the applications one by one and trying to restore all the data manually will take me about six years. I would finished just in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
    The main problem is, I don't know where all the bodies are buried. Just one example, I'm using Cornerstone for an svn client. I have working copies of multiple repositories on my computer. I really don't want to set them all up again, and I can't figure out where the Cornerstone preferences and all settings are stored. I couldn't find them in the Library anywhere.
    And that's just one case.
    I haven't done much with my MacBook Pro yet, I think in retrospect the easiest course of action is to reinstall OS X as though it were new MacBook Pro, start from scratch, and use my Time Machine backup with the migration assistant and go from there.
    And that's what I'm doing right now. I'm in the middle of reinstalling OS X.
    Afterwords I'll use a clean app uninstaller application to get rid of all the applications that I'm not using. And I'll just hack away at directories that I know I haven't looked at for years, with the confidence that I have a backup both in Time Machine and in CCC and also on my iMac. That's three backups.
    I would rather start out "light", but I can see it's just going to take forever and a day to get it done. Anyway, fortunately nothing is carved in stone, and I can always try again if I want to. But dealing with all the documents and all the applications one by one separately was just obviously going to take too much time.
    I'll report back on my results. And I appreciate your suggestion.
