Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition by David Pogue, Adam Goldstein

Its little wonder that longtime Windows users are migrating in droves to the new Mac.

Whether youre drawn to the Macs stability, its stunning digital media suite, or the fact that a whole computer can look and feel as slick as your iPod, you can quickly and easily become a Mac convert. But consider yourself warned: a Mac isnt just a Windows machine in a prettier box; its a whole different animal and a whole new computing experience. If youre contemplating--or have already made--the switch from a Windows PC to a Mac, you need Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, This incomparable guide delivers what Apple doesnt: everything you need to know to successfully and painlessly move to a Mac. The latest reprint of this book has been updated to reflect the new generation of Mac models that run on Intel chips.
