    We finally convinced my wife to give up her trusty (rusty) DELL and switch to a MacBook - yippee !!!

    She's not highly technical and doesn't get off on "playing around" with a computer to learn about the OS - so we're looking for a simple guide that will help her learn some of the Mac basics - without over-powering her with too much stuff. (Missing Manual would be WAY to much)

    Is there a good, simple book that helps folks make the switch? My daughter and I have been Mac users for so long we don't know where to start.

    BTW - she inherited a MacBook with Tiger on it - 10.4.11

    Ah yes - I have used these before - didn't think of that. Good idea.

    Now, I just have to convince her that I'm not suggesting SHE is the dummy :)
