    Hi there

    I have sort of an off-the-wall question.
    I will be giving a Powerbook to a friend who is a native mandarin speaker. I wondered if there are any good books (hopefully in chinese) which explain how best to configure OSX for chinese - and teach the basics of OSX and the iLife suite?

    I did a google on this and didnt come up with much.. but my assumption is that is because i (personally) dont read chinese so i couldnt do a chinese search...

    thanks for any pointers!

    Hi -

    Try these links.

    http://www.beimac.com/modules/news/ (might be able to give you some tips)

    And this article by the president of beimac gives some info about Chinese mac books:

    http://www.macsimumnews.com/index.php/archive/peoples_republic_of_mac_a_sea_of_characters

    His email is linked there, you could always mail him for specific titles.

    Remember, if your friend is from Taiwan, he´ll probably prefer an edition in traditional characters. A mainland Chinese will want simplified characters.

    Edit: It occurred to me that you are probably getting this person a Mac with the OS in English. In that case, this is a great site that explains using Chinese on Mac:
