Hi there.

My grandparents are really intrigued by computers and want to try one out to do basic stuff - research, etc... I'm going to give them an old one I have and will give them all the help I can. I wanted to try and find them a good book that might explain things from a task-based perspective ("I want to print something...") as opposed to a technical perspective ("Printer Setup is located here...").

If anyone's had a similar goal or just knows of a book that's put together in a beginner-friendly way and can point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it - and so would my grandparents ;)

Thanks!

If you have a .mac account, the training videos they have are excellent for beginners.

Just make sure the book matches the computer – no point in giving them OSX for Dummies if they're running OS9...
