At 2 inches high and 6-1/2 inches square and with a price tag under $500, Apple's Mac mini provides just what you've been looking for -- a viable, low-cost way to move to a Mac and its software without giving up all of your existing peripherals (keyboard, display, and mouse). Here to get you going is the definitive guide from award-winning technology writer David Coursey.
There's a lot involved in moving to a new OS--you have to transfer files, learn software, and unravel a new interface -- but David helps you with everything you need to get up to speed quickly. This book begins by explaining why, where, and when to get a Mac mini before launching into a thorough description of the Mac mini and its uses. David then shows you how to do on your Mac mini all the things you've been doing on your Windows machine -- and how to use all the great software that is available only for Macs. And finally, David gets into more advanced topics such as troubleshooting your Mac mini and, for those who can’t give up all of their PC-only applications, how to run Windows on it.
