    What is the best book or website for new Mac users? I just switched over from my PC and need help understanding my new computer. This forum has already helped me out greatly, just looking for other sources to use as well. :confused:

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    For a beginner Mac user, the forums definitely help out a bunch. There are plenty of people here willing to help you out with what you need.

    When I first became a "switcher," I liked this book here:

    http://www.amazon.com/Switching-Mac...bs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1232299159&sr=8-1

    Good luck! You will highly enjoy every aspect of a Mac. If you need any further help, don't hesitate to ask. :)

    I'm in the same situation as you, healthy01. I too am brand new to the Mac world, having just bought my first one over the Christmas holidays.
    I was at Indigo book store a few days after buying the mac, and noticed they have a "Mac OS X Leopard for dummies" book. I've had a couple of other "for dummies books", and found they are well written in plain english for "Joe Average". I bought the book, and am 3/4 of the way through it. It has been helpful, and I also use it as a desk reference (just used it to find something today, in fact).

    Thank you all for your help. I purchased both books just minutes ago. I am so excited to get rolling with my MAC. :eek:
