What is included with this book?


If you bought an iMac, you2re unbelievably smart (and lucky). You2ve neatly eliminated most of the hassle, frustration, and annoyance that normally come with buying a computer. You2ve saved yourself some cash, while still getting a fast, state-of-the-art machine. In short, the iMac is the gadget that comes closest to fulfilling the vision of Apple founder Steve Jobs: to make a personal computer that2s as easy to use as your toaster. So, if the iMac is so easy to use, then who needs a book about it? Well, despite all the free goodies that come with your iMac, an operations manual is not one of them. You need somewhere to turn when things go wrong, when you2d like to know what the add-on software does, or when you want to stumble onto the Internet for the first time. That2s where The iMac For Dummies, 2nd Edition, steps in to help. Here2s a sampling of the topics you2ll find covered in The iMac For Dummies, 2nd Edition: Setting up your new iMac and getting around in Mac OS 9 Understanding how all those gizmos inside the iMac case work Accomplishing what you want to do (imagine that!) Setting up your printer with your iMac Getting onto the Internet with AOL, and exploring the Web Having fun with the iMac2s free software Making movies with iMovie Setting up your iMac for AirPort wireless networking Troubleshooting and Top Ten lists on the perfect iMac accessories and cool things your iMac can do So, if you2ve just picked up an iMac and you want to get up to speed quickly, or if you2ve been a Mac user for years and need some additional pointers, The iMac For Dummies, 2nd Edition, can get you on your way to making the most of your Mac experience.
