Synopsis:

Mac computer sales are far outpacing the sales of PCs recently and the number of users working with a Mac for the first time is growing almost as rapidly. While a Mac is out of the box easy, there are some fundamental, even philosophical differences between a Mac and a PC. This book provides “switchers” with the essential information, coupled with savvy advice, on everything from simple tasks like getting started on a Mac, to intermediate information, and hip tips that cover sharing data between a Mac and PC, dual boot and running Windows applications on a Mac using BootCamp, and safely transferring important data such as calendars, contacts, and music.

Genius icons present smart or innovative ways to do something; in many cases, this will be a way that readers can save time or hassle. A handy smaller trim size makes it easy for readers to carry with them essential information on the hottest tips and tricks for their Mac.
