Been using Macs since 1984.
But since I upgraded from a Power Mac G4, I felt I needed to find what new stuff the Mac had in store for me.
Best user's manual I have ever read and I read them all.
Great for new users, but not enough important information
This user guide is really easy to understand. I like how conscise it is and how well orgaized it is. I just wish there was more informarion on some of the basics. Like a more indepth look at Finder. Even the user guide that comes built-in with every Mac doesn’t have enough information to get a full undertanding of how to use a Mac.
Just got my new iMac and can’t download this - help!
New iMac and iMac Essential instructions
Extremely helpful, and easy to follow. I do not like paper manuals and this book always on iBook, is a great resource. Thanks to the person who came up with this idea!
Excellent read for the newly converted. Simple, easy and very informative. I knew only windows computers. This book helped me quite a bit. I refer back to it often. I give it five stars. I also downloaded another helpful book called “iMac For Dummies”. Am very happy that I finally took the plunge and made the switch to Apple. Not to take away anything from Windows. They are still great. But Apple is so different and so awesome. I love everything about it.
I am expecting to receive my iMac from Apple this week, and I began reading the iMac
Essentials on my MacBook Air (laptop). The page numbers on iMac Essentials are there,
but so faint that it is almost impossible to read. I don’t understand why the page numbers
are so faint, and I can not find a constructive help from the Help. Can you help?
Very Bad Interface and Download
By Renaissance Reviews
I am extremely dissatisfied with the inability to download a jpg copy of this for taking on the go for viewing on non-Apple products. Currently I am limited as to being able to only view it on my iMac. I do not use iPhones, nor do I use iPads. The fact that Apple has chosen to make it mandatory that it be only viewable on an Apple iOS device is absolutely ridiculous, especially for someone who has trouble viewing documents on small screens. Shame on you Apple.

iMac Essentially GREAT!
I received my iMac the day before yesterday. I first turned it on yesterday and set it up. I’d have had less of a problem migrating files from a Windows PC (never going back) if I had read this guide prior to the set up. I wish this was in printed form and came in the box with the iMac. I have learned so much just by reading this guide that I never suspected an iMac can do or how easy it is to do it. Great guide, especially for a new to iMac user. I will be using it as a reference guide whenever if I have to but I don’t believe that will be for too long. Essentially GREAT!
Really good overview. Well written, clean instructions.
