Overview

Long the most popular personal computer in classrooms and schools, the Macintosh is (not surprisingly) many parents' choice as a home computer for the use of the whole family. Whether you already own a Mac or are just thinking about buying one, Macs For Kids & Parents has the answers you need. In this complete book and CD-ROM package, authors Tom Negrino and Wendy Sharp reveal all that's special about the Mac, from its user-friendly interface to its plug-and-play upgradeability. The authors take you through the basics of selecting the Mac model that's right for your family's needs and budget to installing and using software and hardware, going online, and taking advantage of educational, reference, and game programs. Macs For Kids & Parents also offers plenty of ideas on how to introduce your youngest to computing, your oldest to online researching and creating high-quality term papers, and the whole family to building and publishing home pages on the World Wide Web. Plus, on the bonus CD-ROM, you get valuable software, including AT&T WorldNetSM Service for online access, a special version of Netscape Navigator for browsing the World Wide Web, along with trial versions of Fractal Design Painter, Claris Home Page, Surf Watch, and Claris Emailer.
