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.
