Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Yosemite. Apples latest operating system is faster, smarter, and more in tune with iPads and iPhones. If Yosemite has it, this book covers it.
  • Get the expert view. Learn from Missing Manuals creator David Pogue—author of OS X Yosemite: The Missing Manual, the #1 bestselling Mac book on earth.

About the Author

David Pogue, Yale '85, is the weekly personal-technology columnist for the New York Times and an Emmy award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News. His funny tech videos appear weekly on CNBC. And with 3 million books in print, he is also one of the world's bestselling how- to authors. In 1999, he launched his own series of amusing, practical, and user-friendly computer books called Missing Manuals, which now includes 100 titles.
