iMac Essentials provides everything you need to set up and start using your new iMac. Learn how to turn on and use your mouse and keyboard, as well as how to connect to Wi-Fi, use the apps that came with your iMac, and much more.
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.
This is my first iMac after after many years of android products I finnally made that jump and I am so glad I did. This iBook is an easy read a great short book that covered the basic and was an eye opener for me, especially the section on keyboard functions along with many other sections that expain shortcut to using the MAC without boring you to death. Hey, It may not have everthing in it about the MAC but it had enough for me. You know what they say “ You don’t know what you don’t know” but it a wonderful thing to have the tools to begin learning. Thanks
Weel worth reviewing
As a long experienced Mac user, I found this document well worth reviewing. I discovered a few new tricks and features I was not aware of htat have been added recently. I recommend you check out this doc, even if you think you know everything. It’s worth a quick scan.
The book was extremely informative and easy to understand. Being a new Mack owner it has given me the confidence to start using my iMac like a pro. Very appreciative for the book.
Sales literature posing as a user’s manual
iMac Essentials is the worst user manual I have ever seen. I am trying to use the camera to make a simple video to send to someone. The manual does say I can make a video using iMovie. I did make a test video, now what? I cannot see where the video is in the iMac’s file structure, so I can’t send it to anyone.
