I'm so glad you found it helpful! And you are right about remembering the power cord. I have never taken my iMac anywhere but to the Apple Store for an "Open Training" or a "Studio Hours" session to learn something new, and the Apple Store always has plenty of cords. Just in case you forget yours... Sharon

Wow...two comments in one day? I'm so happy. We are in an area where we are prohibited from going out in public for anything other than to get food, so knowing that my effort to help someone in this time, is especially important to me. Thank you for letting me know. Sharon

It's amazing to me that this video I made in 2014 is still being helpful to people. I'm amazed and grateful. Thanks so much for writing

Thank you so much for letting me know. The iMac packaging has changed a bit from when I first made this video, but recently I helped a Senior get a new iMac and saw that it was basically the same. Your comment encourages me to make more video tutorials.

You are good. I struggled trying to place the foam for 6 or 10 tries. When I got this for Mom(Who is over 100) I was able to do it. Now 3 years later my brain failed me as I was trying to move Mom and her iMac.

thank you so much, we are moving tomorrow and spent an entire hour trying to figure it out. I'm also relieved that we're not the only one to struggle so much with a simple puzzle.

Thank you for reclaiming an hour of my life. Amazing that Apple couldn't even label their styrofoam to make this more intuitive.

This is a 64 year old dude from darkest Africa! Thanks, Sharon. I was wheezing heavily trying to fix the foams and boxes. I said, 'sod it', there must be a video on this -- and lo! yours was the first hit, and in less than five minutes I had re-packed my iMac. Next time, probably folks, take a snapshot of the boxed-in contents of any gizmo with your phone. Might be useful when re-packing! Sharon, I wish I could send you a bunch of flowers -- but you have my blessings!

Thank you so much for doing this video! I am shipping mine to Alaska and needed to know how to put the foam on so that I can ship it safely! :D

This was such a great and informative video that was clear & concise, I had to sign on to not only give you a thumb's up, but comment on how appreciative I am that you have it on here! I'm in the middle of packing to move and didn't have time for another video showing the back of the box, not the front where we needed to see what he was doing! You really DO rock! TYSM! =)

Sharon! You saved me and my iMac for my move. I struggled for about 30 minutes; watched your video and my computer was repackaged in less than 3 minutes. Thank you so much - great camera work, and for the clear and concise instructions. You rock 🙌🏽

Thank you for making this look so simple and effortless - I struggled for longer than I’d like to admit to try get it in the box before this video.. 😅
