All you have to do is make an Apple Id, then launch iCloud on both iPhone and your Mac, enter your Apple Id and password, there will be a prompt which apps should run iCloud, make sure you have the checkbox for Contacts and your contacts from iPhone will appear on your Mac as well.

Thanks for your note. I tried this. What is strange is in the mail app on my new macpro, my contacts/addresses have clearly been "added" via icloud. But the contacts APP remains empty. It gives me the option to look up contats in icloud, I click on icloud, then no contacts appear. So....any ideas on how to get my contacts as they appear on the contact APP on my phone to transfer to the contact APP on my new mac? This is odd to me and should not be this hard.

I think it's very easy if you use some third party app to help, this guide would tell you know: How to Move iPhone Contacts to Mac/PC.

Use your Mac Address Book and sync your iPhone with iTunes. From the Info tab, under Contacts, make sure to select “Address Book” from the drop-down menu before you sync.
I am not sure whether it works on Mac, but you can use copytrans contacts to transfer the contacts too (in case you do not want to use iTunes sync):
Finally, you can simply use the iCloud app and install it on your Mac. Make sure to enable iCloud contact sync on your iPhone. Then import contacts from your Mac to your iCloud application, this will move and sync the contact entries to your iPhone.
