It's hard to believe the first Macintosh was introduced in 1984. Today, they're as popular as ever. The iMac, MacBook, Mac Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini all run Mac OS X Leopard. You can also run a Microsoft Windows operating system on any Mac with an Intel processor. Wait, there's more! Sync an iPod, iPhone, or digital camera to your Mac to organize and share music, movies, and photos.
Easy Mac Computer Basics shows you how to set up an iMac and a MacBook, connect them to an iPod and iPhone, and work with a wide range of Apple software. Learn to do things such as synchronize your calendar (iCal) and Address Book with iTunes, play music or movies, organize photos, surf with Safari, and get a handle on text with Pages. Using Macs with iPods and iPhones with OS X Leopard and OS X applications is the focus of this book. Although nearly all the iPod and iPhone tasks in this book show Mac OS X, doing the same task with iTunes on Windows is similar. This book also covers Boot Camp and various Windows computer tasks.
This book is divided into three parts: connecting and customizing Macs, working with applications, and maintaining Macs. The first part shows some elementary but necessary tasks. Part 1 shows you how to set up your Mac and connect it to an iPod or iPhone. Parts 2 and 3 focus on Mac OS X basics such as customizing Mac OS X and selecting, moving, and finding files and folders. Part 4 covers some common tasks with TextEdit, copy/paste, and creating PDFs with your text documents.
The second part of the book covers connecting to the Internet, setting up a wireless home network, and some popular Apple applications: iTunes, iPhoto, Pages, iChat, iCal (calendar), Address Book, and Photo Booth. Learn how to set up a wireless back up with Time Machine and Time Capsule, surf with Safari, organize your music, movies and photos; set up and sync calendar and contact information from your Mac to your iPod or iPhone; and chat with your buddies or create a great-looking document with Pages!
Parts 14, 15, 16, and 17 focus more on your Mac hardware. Part 15 walks you through setting up Boot Camp, running Boot Camp and configuring your Mac to install Windows Vista. Parts 14, 16, and 17 show you how to connect and remove devices, add security to your Mac, and maintain it.
You can read this book from beginning to end, starting gradually and learning as you complete each chapter. If that doesn't float your boat, you can pick any task and dig in to Easy Mac Computer Basics and use this book as a reference. Either way, Easy Mac Computer Basics lets you see it done, and then do it yourself.
