Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No matter how many bells and whistles a new operating system offers--and with Mac OS X 10.3 Panther the list is a long one--using that new OS can be an intimidating process. Unless, of course, you have Robin Williams in your corner: In this volume she once again works her magic by providing a gentle and friendly introduction to Mac OS X Panther. In these pages, Robin covers not just the basics of using a Mac under Mac OS X--printing, sending e-mail, exchanging files, surfing the Internet--but all of the important new and improved features as well: working with Panther's all-new Finder, using Expose to work with windows, getting started with iChat AV, expanded coverage of networking, improved Web access with the Safari browser, working with Mail, and lots more.

Book News Annotation:

Macintosh computer gurus cover the latest Mac operating system for both beginners (in specially marked sections) and those users familiar with, and perhaps not ready to let go of, Panther's predecessor. Includes a glossary and quiz with an answer key.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Explains the ins and outs of the Apple Macintosh operating system.
