Buying a Mac neatly eliminates most of the hassle, frustration, and annoyance that normally comes with buying a computer. In addition, the modern Macintosh model has everything you need built in: a modem, a CD–ROM, and a glorious color screen (built into every model except Power Macs). Selling a complete computer in one handy bundle isn’t a new idea – but rarely has it all worked together so smoothly.

If the Mac is so simple, then who needs a book about it? Well, despite all the free goodies you get with the Mac, a manual isn’t among them. You need somewhere to go when things go wrong or when you want to know what the add–on software does. Macs For Dummies, 7th Edition, is the resource to turn to. This information–packed book is for

  • Aspiring or experienced graphic artists
  • The computer newbie who wants to get to know the Mac
  • The regular Mac user who want to explore the newest features and applications
  • The computer user who is switching from a Windows–based PC to the Mac
  • Anyone who is tired of battling PC viruses (there is only one known virus – easily avoided –  that affects Macs!)

Macs For Dummies, 7th Edition, is your complete guide to the Mac. Find out how to make movies with iMovie ; build a database with AppleWorks 6; or go wireless with the AirPort Card. Following is a hit list of just some of the things you’ll find in this book:

  • Understanding windows, icons, and folders
  • Getting fast with keyboard shortcuts
  • Hooking up a printer, scanner, digital camera, or PalmPilot
  • Making your way onto the Internet
  • Having fun with e–mail
  • Making your laptop battery last
  • Troubleshooting problems
  • Getting familiar with Mac OS X
