How I setup a new Macbook in 2023


I purchased my first MacBook Pro in 2013 prior to transitioning to remote work. In my job, we were using saltstack to build an automation tool. In order to delve deeper into Salt, I decided to configure my Macbook using it, and I documented the process here.

I also utilized this method to set up another Macbook for my older sister.

In 2018, due to work requirements, 8GB of memory proved insufficient to run Windows on VirtualBox, prompting me to acquire a second hand MacBook with 16GB of RAM.
