    When I turn on my new MBP, at what point can I take screenshots?

    Also, does anyone know what the sequence of screens are when you first turn on your MBP?

    You can only take screenshots when you're in the operating system. Not before (during boot/first setup) or after (during shutdown).

    CMD+Shift+3 if you want to screenshot the whole screen. CMD+Shift+4 will turn the cursor into a crosshair, that you can drag over whatever you want to screenshot. CMD+Shift+4+Spacebar will turn the cursor into a camera icon. From there you can screenshot a specific application window by clicking on it. All screenshots will automatically save to the desktop.

    Sequence of screens on first setup? Errr... choose a username and set a password, enable location services, iCloud, enable crash logs/reports... not likely in that particular order. But that's the sort of thing you can expect to see. :)
