Hi all, I ordered my frst ever Mac computer, and it's due to arrive this week wih lion preinstalled. Have any publications been released with a guide to mac computers, but recent enough so they focus on lion? I ust want to get using it to its full potential, and obviously coming from Windows I need to get my head round macs in general.

I'm looking for either printed or online guide, 'OSX Lion for Dummies' for dummies for example.

Thanks

Seems like the guys over at Dummy's have already finished their Lion guide. Check it out here (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&safe=off&client=safari&rls=en&q=mac+for+dummies+lion&um=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1280&bih=738&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=13394383767866261882&sa=X&ei=pUM1TuKeOcqo8AOz0fmhDg&ved=0CDsQ8wIwAA#ps-sellers). :D

Don't spend your money, give yourself some time and learn by doing or from forums and google. I don't think you need to read a lot to start enjoying your Mac even if you have never used one

David Pogue's books are well regarded and I see on Amazon he has a new book on Lion coming out in September. (http://www.amazon.com/Mac-OS-Lion-Missing-Manual/dp/1449397492/ref=zg_bs_377537011_3)
