I have a brand new Macbook 5.1. This is my first exposure to a computer other than PC.

Can you please recommend a good book to get introduced to the potential & features & tips of and for Mac environment?

Thanks

It is good to get to know the free utils available for MAC. I think I will wade through these tools first.

But if you a intro book you have in mind, it will be good to keep that also in reference.

I do not understand how the responses above relate to your question.

For your question, these two are probably the most relevant, choose one:

No, I "still" don't understand how your links relate to "a good book to get introduced to the potential & features & tips of and for Mac environment".  But, please, I do not need an explanation.  My comments were for the seeker.

Apple has a wealth of on-line videos that will probably get you started faster than a book:

Mac Basics:  http://www.apple.com/findouthow/mac/

Start with the ones in the right hand side bar. There is one in particular for switchers from Windows.
