Publisher Comments:

Get the most from Apple's ultracool new MacBook Air.

Apple's newest MacBook Air is smaller, lighter, and more powerful than ever. And this convenient little book is loaded with tips and techniques for everything from getting started with your MacBook Air to maximizing power and battery life. Learn innovative ways to accomplish a task more efficiently, master the new features of the MacBook Air, and take advantage of all the remote features and accessories. Fun, hip, and portable, this guide has what every Mac fan needs to know about the MacBook Air.

  • The new MacBook Air features flash storage, longer battery life, a full-sized keyboard with multitouch trackpad, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and extreme portability
  • This convenient, portable guide explains popular new features and how to make the most of them
  • Covers all the key skills, tools, and shortcuts to make you a more efficient MacBook user
  • Includes plenty of hip tips for configuring the multitouch trackpad, maximizing power, streamlining common tasks, and more

As cool as the MacBook Air itself, this book has what you need to maximize your portable computer.

Synopsis:

The Genius is in.

You don't have to be a genius to use a MacBook Air. But if you want to get the very most out of yours, put this savvy Portable Genius guide to work and ramp up the pace. Want to sync your Air to your iPad, iPod, or iPhone? Get more out of MobileMe, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi? Organize your online life — and your real life? You'll find all of that and more, including cool and useful Genius tips, full-color screenshots, and pages of easy-to-access shortcuts and tools that will save you loads of time — and help you enjoy your MacBook Air to the max.

Synopsis:

Mac users are passionate and loyal and these books capture that same feeling in pedagogy and series style.

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 MacBook Air. Readers will discover savvy advice on everything from simple tasks like getting started to intermediate information and hip tips that cover how to maximize the power of the newest portable from Apple.
