    Anyone take advantage of One to one? I am going to be buying my first Mac and am wondering if it is worth it for programs like Aperture. I can probably navigate the every day stuff like set up, Internet, email, etc. Is Aperture so different from Photoshop that I wil need lessons? Is One-to-one worth it for other parts of learning my way around a Mac?

    I am pretty tech savvy when it comes to PC's but asides from iPod, iPad, and iPhone, this is my first experience with the Mac OS, etc.

    I have used a Mac since the old SE days, when it ran off two floppies, with no internal hard drive! I have owned many Mac's since then, and have felt I have a fairly good grasp of the OS, and many apps.

    Knowing that my spouse was going to inherit my old laptop, I purchased a One-to-One when I purchased my new laptop. I went to the first few classes ... and then went to all of them. While the classes were geared for a timid newbie, I found I was learning something at every class, and eventually took some classes alone on things that I had never used (garageband, for example).

    As many private classes as you want for a year for $99? How can you go wrong?!?!?

    Yes, I highly recommend that you purchase this! :D

    Good luck, and enjoy!

    Get it. Where you going to get weekly one on one classes for $100 for a whole year? Some of the "creatives" are more knowledgeable than others. Usually the best people will deal with Aperture/Final Cut sessions. It'll be well worth it IMO.

    As the other people stated: Totally Worth It! I use 1 to 1 for FCP, iWork, iPhoto, and when I switched from the Evil Empire. I possess a firm grasp with iWork and Mac basics mostly due to qualified Apple trainers at my local store. Classes at a Community College will cost four times the price of 1 to 1 and that's for one class. Hope this helps! Oh, did I mention why you should not debate whether 1 to 1 is worth it? ;) :)

    I should say I'm not entirely new to Macs. I had an Apple IIc and an Apple IIe when I was 14 or so.

    If you haven't used a mac since the Apple IIe, I would say that you are "new" to Mac. BUT, if you have a natural affinity towards the Mac OS, then you should have no problem.

    I would definitely jump on the one-to-one. Definitely worth the price and many of trainers are pro-photographers.
