    Hello All,

    I was wondering if anyone knew of an OS X instructional DVD. I am planning on getting my parents an iMac and wanted them to be able to get up and running quick. I know Macs are easy to figure out, but you dont know my parents! Haha, anyways...what I am looking for is something that fills the screen and looks like the OS X GUI but is really some sort of flash based tutorial or something that will give instructions....like, "This is the dock, click the icon that looks like a stamp....good! You've opened Mail. Now move the mouse to the red circle.....good!..." and so on. Am I making any sense? Anyone know of anything like this?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Yes

    I think that there are at least2 different produces.

    One is available from www.lynda.com

    The other one is available at the Apple Store, I forget who makes it. My mother bought this with her new iBook in the summer.

    They both seem decent.
