I purchased but have not received it yet a book that was recommended to me called; "Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual." What does the release of Snow Leopard have on the info. in this book? I was really excited to finally know about the OS I use. Is this considered a "new OS" or just a new version?

any thoughts? should I return it and look for one that included Snow Leopard?

Is One-on-One the same as Personal Training? I think you can only get One-on-One when you firs purchase a new mac. For some reason I heard you can get Personal Trainng anytime.

It seems like the Apple Stores are doing les and less. I wanted a larger HD and more ram and faster HD but they would only do the ram upgrade. Curious why they are doing less than more. They always look packed when I drive by.

Peace

Thanks for any help...

If you are going to Snow Leopard, return the book for a credit if possible an d sure there will be something available on SL. Like buying a Tiger OS X.4 guide for Leopard OXS X.5 ~ much of the information will be tops, but the manual for the precise system will be better.

Well on upgrading, did you buy from Apple directly or a reseller? Find an Apple reseller who have technical staff and have them upgrade. Machines would be sup[plied by Apple pretty much the same everywhere.

Maybe they did not want the hastle of cracking your machine, particularly if it is an iMac, Mac Mini or laptop.

I recieved the same advice and looked into the Leopard version of it and relizing SL was coming out i went down that avenue. Would love to know the in's and out's of the OS and would have so many advantages.

David Pogue is the Authour and he is the Tech writer for The New York Times and here is his take on SL

Mac OS Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual
ISBN- 13 :9780596153281


I pre ordered a copy and being in Australia our distributors aren t receiving any until mid Sept and the book stores about 2 weeks after they receive them.

I got it for $75 AUD but from the reports i have it will be a good investment.
Google it and u get a lot of online distributors ...

So you are much smarter than I am. I did not even think of that. Darn. Returning to Amazon is no fun.

Just so I understand what you all are saying to this retarded wanna-be Mac user. I have only used Tiger and stopped at the last version. Leopard made me too nervous, just the "cinematography" and the major gloss applied to the LCD had me wondering if I can get past the "look." No, you are saying to return the Book on Leopard the Missing Manual or whatever it was and look for the one that is called Snow Leopard: the Missing Manual?

Why don't they just put a good Manual on a disk and stick it in the box when they install the OS?

Mainly because it would be so dry that you probably won't be able to read it for very long. The book that you are purchasing isn't written by Apple anyways.

Plus it nicer to have some of the more tech savy people do the research for you and then dumb it down for the less computer literate people.

I am trying to figure out why you asked where I purchased my notebook..just helps me understand your question.

Well to put it bluntly i wouldnt read a manual that extensive from a screen and i like the feel of paper and love to read books.
This is as a reference i would like to have beside the system im using not on it.

Agree whole heartedly. To have a un-bias opinion as David has as well is so refreshing and he does write some bloody good manuals...

Not into the "****** for Dummies"

If you are not willing to wait for the release of the Snow Leopard manual, the regular Leopard volume would still be very useful. Snow Leopard will not have many new features, anyway.
