    Best way to learn how to use my mac
    What is the best way how to learn how to use my mac or any software.

    I am married and am time poor as i have young children, i have purchased a few books but never really have had time to even look at them as reading a book like this you need to have the machine in front of you.

    I just want to get a lot more out of my machine as i only use it for surfing the net and i know it has a lot more capabilities than that.

    Any suggestion would be gratefully received.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    I think this one's easier to follow, being video tutorials

    If you're a visual learner like me, you may find video tutorials helpful. Here are some on Mac basics including iChat, Expose, Time Machine, etc.

    And here are a bunch of cool tips once you get past the basics.

    As for particular programs, a google search for tutorials will bring up plenty of YouTube videos you can watch. Any in particular you'd like to learn?

    The other advice I have is just to explore the applications yourself. Open them up, look at the Preferences under each one and explore their interfaces.
