New to the Mac way of thinking? Finally had enough of the colossus named Vista and don’t want to wait to see if Windows 7 is all its hyped up to be? Then buy yourself a Mac whether it be a Macintosh Laptop or iMac and see why Windows users are migrating in droves to these easy to use computers.
The Mac range uses the Snow Leopard and Leopard Operating Systems which although are different to the Windows Based systems have an easy to learn interface that really says simplicity is the best.
However with all things new there is a learning process and the change to an Apple Mac can require further instruction than what is readily available when purchasing. This is where the Little Mac Book helps the new user. This is an easy to read light hearted approach to computing where the author develops a rapport with the reader and shares the experience of mastering this new technology.
One of my friends once said to me when talking about using a Mac computer was that you needed to forget what you have learnt about using a Windows based computer and just think simply and logically. In essence he was right. However there still is a need for instruction and this book really helps.
The book covers aspects including getting to know the Mac, how its working interface and icons are displayed and the best ways to use the Macs excellent multi media applications. It even explains how to add a virtual machine to run Windows if you need to.
The book is brilliantly written by Robin Williams (No not that one) whose easy going approach to teaching various aspects of Mac computing make it very easy to learn.
Another great guide I would highly recommend if your purchasing a Mac is “Switching to the Mac” from authors David Pogue and founder of GoldfishSoft Adam Goldstein. This is also a very detailed extra manual to the Mac computing experience and makes an excellent ready reckoner for any computing issues you may have with your Mac.
The Book has 224 pages
The Little Mac Book costs approximately $25.00
