Whether you prefer the Pro or are all about the Air, the key to getting the most enjoyment out of your MacBook device is understanding how the hardware and all the included software work together. By the time you've finished watching this information-packed, 78-tutorial course, you'll be up and running – at peak performance – with your mac-nificent MacBook.
Expert trainer, Scott Freiman, starts off with a tour of the MacBook itself giving you an introduction to the input and output connections, keyboard, trackpad, and basic user interface (UI). From there, he teaches you how to use all the MacBook's essential features, including trackpad gestures, keyboard commands, Bluetooth, and your account settings.
Next up are apps. Swing by the Mac App Store and discover how to search, browse and download the latest applications directly to your MacBook, then get the inside scoop on managing all those apps with Launchpad, Spaces, and more.
From there, Scott dives in to the Finder, the heart of any Apple computer where you can quickly organize, locate, manage and navigate any hardware and software that is in use by your MacBook. The course continues with an in-depth section on surfing the web with Safari and staying organized and in touch with iCal, Calendar, iMessage, Mail, and other productivity apps.
But, enough of the technical stuff, it's time to have some fun! As this informative course comes to a close, you'll become a master of multimedia with helpful advice on how to get more from your music, movies, photos, and videos.
In each lesson, you'll find clear expert video instruction, useful tips and reminders, and tools for taking notes, keeping track of your favorite lessons, and monitoring your progress along the way.
