    Sorry of this is in the wrong spot or if there's another section for this, I'm on my phone so navigating is a bit wonky.
    But, I just ordered a new MacBook pro 17:p

    I haven't used an O/S made by apple in probably 12 years, since they had the big translucent neon colored iMacs. Anyways my laptop will be here in about a week and I'm just wondering if anybody knows any good links or books that gives an in depth look at The Mac OS. Like possibly a nice list of keyboard shortcuts, tips, and just some info to make the time I spend on my MacBook a lot more efficient. Just any useful information on gettin my sealegs with this territory thats so long forgotten

    Books to read

    Here are some books to look for:

    Mac OS X Lion: The Missing Manual by David Pogue (not out yet). Pogue's missing manual books are great.

    Mac OS X Lion Pocket Guide by Chris Seibold. (Published) I've glanced over the book. It seem to good for beginners.

    Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Lion Edition by David Pogue (not out yet) Again The Missing Manual books are great, and this one is for switchers. :)

    Mac OS X Lion Bible by Galen Gruman (Know nothing about this book)

    Mac OS X Lion For Dummies (For Dummies) by Bob LeVitus (Know nothing about this book, but the Dummies books have always been good books.)

    Those are just a few I found on Amazon. NOTE: I have no ties to Amzon whats so ever. For those that are out, you might be able to find them at your local library.
