1st boot & set up Mini 2012

Since I’m new to MAC, what do I need for the 1st boot up, I have already ordered Mac Mini 2012 Fusion drive and it should arrive some time this month, the Apple B/T wireless Keyboard and track pad have already arrived.

when I start up the mini for the 1st time, can I use keyboard/trackpad straight away?, or do I need a cable keyboard and mouse for the 1st boot set up etc.

Yup, you can use them. It will walk through pairing the wireless keyboard & trackpad with your mini. The Apple out-of-the-box experience is the best there is.

Mine came today and I hooked it up to my flat screen via HDMI and finished setup in about 4-5 minutes.

Yes bluetooth is on by default.

I've just setup a 2012 mini and didn't need any USB keyboard or mouse, the Mac detects them without issue and pairs them.
