Overview

The Mac community's leading teacher, Robin Williams, is at it again--this time guiding users through the ins and outs of the newest generation of iMacs. Employing the same friendly, comprehensive approach as its best-selling predecessors, The Little iMac Book, Third Edition has been completely revised to cover all of the iMac's new features--and there are plenty!

Once you get over being dazzled by the iMac's dramatic new hardware design and knock-your-socks-off 15-inch flat-panel display, you'll see that there's plenty going on inside the "box" as well, including a radically redesigned operating system (Mac OS X), a DVD player, iPhoto digital photo organizing software, a new e-mail and address book application, and much more. Robin and co-author John Tollett take you through the old and the new, starting with the basics of using the mouse and getting around the desktop, then going on to show you how to take advantage of the iMac's built-in productivity tools, how to connect to and browse the Internet, and more. Let the book that has influenced a generation of Mac users take you and your iMac into the next generation of computing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mac OS 8.5 is the latest operating system available and is a little more difficult to use than earlier versions thanks to myriad new features. Even if former Macintosh users don't have any problems, there will be lots of new users with PowerPCs, G3s, and iMacs clamoring for this book. Langer covers all the usuals: installation, using the new finder and file system, customization, networking, connecting to the Internet, and working with Windows data. Essential for all collections. Williams's classic (The Little Mac Book) likewise has been updated for the popular new iMac. Libraries frequented by students and home computer users might want to buy two and keep one on reserve.
