Perform word processing, movie editing, financial planning, database management, Internet surfing, Web page creation, or countless other tasks more simply and quickly than you might have thought possible. Let this thorough, friendly resource show you how! Coverage includes iBook, and all the new features of Mac OS X Panther such as Finder, Expose, iChatAV, Mail, FileVault, Fast-User Switching, Preview, Built-in Faxing, and more.
Although iMac is noted for being a plug-and-play computer not requiring a hefty guide, a MacAddict contributor believes that his text's comprehensiveness and new coverage of the iBook and eMac justifies its length. Special sections cover using AppleWorks frames to create newsletters and reports, and classic Mac OS (i.e., versions prior to Mac OS X). Stauffer has a Web site focusing on this book. Dates are not given for the previous iterations. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
