What are some good books on switching from PC to Mac?
I like to make the move from Windows OS’s to Mac. My wife and I are heavy PC users (not gamers) but use the PC for business, communications, and Internet shopping. We are looking at a desktop model, something like the MB325. Can you suggest any reference material to read? Any books that describe the types of Macs and what they can do? Thank you.
P.S. I have wanted to make this move for several years as I am tired of all the maintenance and upkeep for a PC.
Welcome to the Mac community, we are happy to have you. The 24″ Aluminum iMac that you are looking at is a good choice and should last you many years. I share a similar model with my wife in our home office and it is a great central family computer.
I love the “The Missing Manual” series from Pogue/O’Reilly press and think it would be a good series for you to read. Start with “Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual – Leopard Edition.” Then after you become comfortable with the differences between Mac and Windows, you can move on to “Mac OSX Leopard: The Missing Manual.”
If you are interested in reading some online sources, you can try this switchers site that has some basic info to get you started: www.switchtoamac.com.
Hope this helps,
