Synopsis:

The Genius is in.

You don't have to be a genius to use the new MacBook Pro. But if you want to get the very most out of it, put this savvy Portable Genius guide to work. Want to control everything on your desktop with Mission Control and launch your apps with the Launchpad? Keep in touch with family, friends, and coworkers with Mail, FaceTime, iChat, and more? Network your system like a pro? Run Windows virtually? You'll find 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 let you enjoy your MacBook Pro to the max.

Synopsis:

Mac users are passionate and loyal and these books capture that same feeling in pedagogy and series style. Titles in the Portable Genius series are not comprehensive; instead they aim to provide readers with the most accessible, useful information possible by giving readers tips and techniques for the most used features in a product or software. These books tell readers what they may not find out by just working with a product or software. 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 smaller trim size makes it handy, but also easy for readers to find essential information and tips for their MacBook Pro. MacBook Pro Portable Genius, Third Edition includes updated coverage on the anticipated new release of iLife as well as the new Intel Core i7 and i5 processors.
