    I just picked up my first ever iMac on Friday night - the 2.4 GHz 20" one. I find it reasonably intuitive so far, but I want some type of reference or 'For Dummies' book that will teach me about Leopard and some of the applications. Most of my Windows experience is hindering me rather than helping me so far. Does anyone have a reco for a useful book that covers beginner through intermediate info on:

    - Leopard
    - iPhoto
    - Mail
    - Bootcamp / Windows on iMac
    - Productivity tips / tricks

    I know there are dozens on Amazon, but I also know a lot probably confuse rather than enlighten. Sorry if this question has been asked - I couldn't find anything in search. Thanks!

    I found that the guided tour is also an excellent guide for leopard. The best thing about it is that its all visual, so you really can't beat that. But the books offers allot more insight and detail obviously.

    Thanks guys, I just ordered the Missing Manual from Amazon. I will check out those movies as well - I looked at them before I bought the iMac so it's probably time to check them out again.
