    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    The missing manual series seems to be most highly recommended, get the Snow Leopard or Lion version depending on what version of OSX you have

    Should be available on barnes and Nobles

    Mac OS X Lion: The Missing Manual*-*O'Reilly Media

    Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual*-*O'Reilly Media

    I guess by posting the word "system" many might have thought I was reffering to the Operating system. Lion. No I just wanted a general book on the Mac Pro. notebook.
    I found one My MacBook Lion Edition a Que Book B&N had it 30% off so it was $20. Just what I needed.
    thanks to everyone for their help.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    What's the difference?

    The OS is the real driving force on usage in any case. So I'm curious what the Macbook specific book has that made it more valuable.

    I think many people like myself who have never used a Mac might just want to know the basic ways to use the notebook, this book gives you the basics.

    Now if someone really wants or feels the need to find out how the OX Lion O.P. does it's black art. Then by all means buy the Program book.
