Macs for dummies
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.
