Switching to the Mac Made Easy, Vol. 1 is the complete visual guide to choosing, buying, and operating your first Mac computer. At the same time, you'll also get "acquainted" with your new system in simple, visual steps and tutorials.

First, this DVD shows you all the Mac model, specifications, and price information you need to select and buy your first Mac model. You'll discover everything you need to know to choose and purchase the right model for you and the way you work and play. That is, after all, the first step in making the switch to Mac!

Next, this DVD goes into the "real meat" of Mac operation such as set up & power on, window, icon, and search operations. You'll also learn the slick, fun and popular Mac-only applications, like "Expose" and " Spaces". Along the way, you'll discover insider secrets to the more complex functions such as moving and copying icons, fine-tuning the desktop as well as modifying the Mac's windows.

So, after you watch and learn hands-on the step-by-step tutorials on this DVD, your Macintosh computer will be "personalized" to your own specifications.

Simply put, you won't believe how easy your switch will be with your Switching to the Mac Made Easy DVD! With Switching to the Mac Made Easy - Volume One, you'll learn...

  • Why more people are switching now than ever before

  • A quick crash-course on your Mac desktop
  • The basic Mac keyboard functions (including for laptop users)

  • How to use "The Dock" (Mac's "Start Menu")
  • How to use the "Expose" feature...

  • And much more...

Whether you've already made the switch or just considering it, this is the DVD you'll want to see! You will learn the secrets that can save you hours of work-a-round in learning a new Mac computer system.

Free Bonus! Along with the video tutorials on this DVD, you'll also get "The Complete Mac Keystroke Database": a ready-to-download-and-print PDF "cheat sheet" that you can use for quick, full control in Mac operation! And you can save it either onto your Windows or Mac computer!

This database contains over 100 different keystrokes for all the essential Mac operations including more specific commands such as for Startup as well as various Print Screen commands. Best of all, this database file is easy to access. Just save it onto your Apple or Windows computer, and it's ready to print!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Helpful Information January 18, 2009
Great help for someone (like me) new to the Mac and overwhelmed by all the manual-speak that comes with it. Robin's presentation is informal and friendly, yet concise and informative. Very easy for anyone to follow and put the information provided to work immediately. This guy definitely knows what he's doing and guides you along step by step on everything you need to know about getting started (and progressing) with your new Mac. The DVD states that future volumes will show how to transfer email and how to add more memory, both of which will come in handy. I look forward to seeing what the next volumes will offer.

Contained in this disc is an introductory step-by-step program of how to familiarize oneself with the Macintosh. I would highly recommend this DVD to all beginner Mac users for three reasons: 1) The instructor, Robin Smith, proves to be a good teacher in this DVD by explaining things in an intelligent manner, but not in a "techie" language that leaves you lost & confused after the first Chapter. 2) While explaining to the viewer the basic Mac functions, Smith demonstrates on his own Mac how to execute those functions, so that the new Mac user will know how to navigate and interact with their Mac. 3) Smith is not a "Mac-evangelist" who spends the entire video bashing the Windows PC and singing the praises of the Macintosh, but rather explains the reasons to choose a Mac over a PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good April 5, 2009
Lately with Confiker and other reasons I was thinking about switching to a Mac. My friend referred me to this DVD. Before this DVD I was like there is no way I could buy a Mac I don't know anything about it, it's like a foreign language. After watching the DVD I think I could buy a Mac and be able to use it without any problems. It not only explains the differences with PC's and Mac's, but it also shows the different types of Mac computers and would help me choose the correct Mac for me. I highly recommend this DVD to anybody even just thinking about switching to a Mac or to anyone who needs a refresher course on the small details of a Mac computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rather Switch Than Fight April 1, 2009
I'd been thinking about switching to a Mac when a friend mentioned this DVD. I was tired of fighting all the hassles that arose in trying to get the computer to do what I needed. Mr. Smith's fine presentation convinced me to take the leap. It was well worth it. Hearing and seeing his explanations were very helpful in getting up to speed. I look forward to Mr. Smith's additional DVDs for further assistance.
