Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ready to move to the Mac? This incomparable guide from New York Times columnist and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue helps you make a smooth transition to OS X Mavericks, a beautiful machine with a thoroughly reliable system. Whether youre using Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8, weve got you covered.

  • Syncing with iOS. If you already have an iPhone or iPad, now's the perfect time to switch to OS X with iCloud, which allows you to sync Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Messages, FaceTime, Game Center, Safari, Reminders, iTunes, the Mac App Store, and Notes across all of your devices.
  • Transferring your stuff. Moving files from a PC to a Mac by cable, network, or disk is the easy part. But how do you extract things like your email, address book, calendar, Web bookmarks, buddy list, desktop pictures, and MP3 files? Now you'll know.
  • Re-creating your software suite. The big-name programs (from Microsoft, Adobe, and others) are available in both Mac and Windows versions, and their documents require no conversion on the Mac. But hundreds of other programs are available only for Windows. This book describes the Macintosh equivalents and explains how to move data to them.
  • Learning OS X Mavericks. Once you've moved into the Macintosh mansion, a final task awaits: Learning your way around. Fortunately, you're in good hands with the author of the #1 bestselling guide to OS X.

Synopsis:

What makes Windows refugees decide to get a Mac? Enthusiastic friends? The Apple Stores? Great-looking laptops? A "halo effect" from the popularity of iPhones and iPads? The absence of viruses and spyware? The freedom to run Windows on a Mac? In any case, theres never been a better time to switch to OS X—and theres never been a better, more authoritative book to help you do it.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Transfer your stuff. Moving files from a PC to a Mac by cable, network, or disk is the easy part. But how do you extract your email, address book, calendar, Web bookmarks, buddy list, desktop pictures, and MP3 files? Now youll know.
  • Recreate your software suite. Many of the PC programs youve been using are Windows-only. Discover the Mac equivalents and learn how to move data to them.
  • Learn Mavericks. Apples latest operating system is faster, smarter, and more iPaddish—but you still have to learn it. Finder tabs. Finder tags. iBooks. Maps. Passwords and credit cards synced between your Mac and your phone or tablet. If Mavericks has it, this book covers it.
  • Get the expert view. Learn from New York Times columnist and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue—author of OS X Mavericks: The Missing Manual, the #1 bestselling Mac book on earth.
