Excellent Guide. Easy to understand and great information

My Take: I found a lot of helpful .... My Take: I found a lot of helpful information, especially clicking on the live links within the documentent. I discovered why my 27 inch Apple display would not work with my new MacBook Pro 15” (It is a 2010 Apple LED Cinema Display with Display Port not Thunderbolt 1. - I can spell Obsolete -.) This document helped me understqand significant differences, If not advances, between the new and old. (MBP 17 inch circa 2011 vs MBP 15 inch Fall of 2016 delivered Jan. 2017.

I See. I am a 47 year old who has never worked with Mac before. I have wanted to switch for sometime, but I felt like it was going to be like learning Russian. I finally took the plunge and and purchased a Macbook Pro. After reading the book I am past my fears and am walking in confidence. I think the switch from Windows world to Mac will be far more seamless, painless and exciting than I had thought. This book was very helpful, easy to read and full of practical information. The links embedded in the document let me explore what I wanted to know more about or try immediately and made the experience more like an adventure than a classroom type expereince.

Helpful But Biased. I gave it five stars because it was everything I exspected and was able to help me to better understand the computer I just bought. However, it is all one huge advert for the MacBook itself so I felt it was a bit biased on how “easy” everything was going to be for me.

Not very helpful needs audio versions. Confusing and not easy to navigate

Thorough and helpful introduction. This is a great user’s manual for the everyday user. The MacBook Pro has surprising features. This book describes them well, tells you where to find and how to use them and never gets bogged down in technical detail. If you have a new macbook, take a couple of hours and wander through it with this superb guide. It’s fun.

Cannot download from China. This book is not supposed to be read by China mainland users?

Well-detailed and Useful with Basic Knowledge. After reading the guide, I understood so much more about how to use the MacBook Pro. I used Windows for most of my life and have just begun transitioning to MacOS for college work. The guide helped me understand the basics of how to use the MacBook.

A new beginning. I have to say after spending a good two hours reading this book I can say that I know more about how my Macbook Pro(2018) works and how to use it. I’m kind of a first generation user of Macbooks in my family so it was kind of surprise that I would have to learn a new operating system by the time I leave for college, which is about 2 months away. This book is a guide design to help you better understand MacBook’s. Its a new beginning that I’m looking forward too.

Worth reading even for a Mac veteran. I have been using Macs since 1990. I learned a few neat tips from reading the guide. In particular how to customize the touch bar, lock my notes, and a reminder of keyboard shorcuts. It’s worth reading so you get the most out of your Mac.

MacBook Pro iBooks. Fantastic job with this. I love it only thing is as a my daughter is a student full time and was wondering for reference reasons why she couldn't tak a quote from some book possible lomg short any way really and have the app automatically turn to PDF. If this is possible can you email me its a lot of time wasting when you have to do it the reg way and or use a PDF converter.

Genny. Good information.

Good. Good

Title of what?. ‘It didn’t answer any questions I had but gave me all kinds of information designed to protect themselves against lawsuits in case I don’t hold my hands correctly and get carpel tunnel o or get backaches because my chair is not the right height.

Only useful for current Macs. Book is only for current Macs. Can’t view the version specific to an older Mac, like for those of us who buy used Macs. LAME.

Good book!. Very informative

#mac pro. The real deal

Not much help. I had a neighbors 12 year old kid explain more than this “users manual” they call a book.

MacBook Pros u must know gestures & such. I love this new MBP.. I think Apple has done a heck of a job with it.. I don’t think the touch bar is all it’s hyped up to be, although it can be helpful at times, but this being my 2nd MBP and has the i9, this thing. wastes no time doing any task and the graphics are absolutely stunning.. I know they aren’t 5K an all of that but it’s a computer and you can output 4K with the correct video adapters and such but it’s always a pleasure having your manual right here in iBooks where you need it & learn the shortcuts and you’ll be a mac user for life… I’ve got everything Apple and I’m more than pleased with everything from the watches, to the iphone X I have, and now the addition of the MacBook really makes running a company that’s web based very easy and they’re just made for productivity as long as you read up on them and know how to use them properly, youll never try PC again unless you’re running paralells…. Great computer - great to have the manual on board for when you need it!!

New to Mac World. i like how simple this guide was and with quick links. its almost dummy proof. in a matter of minutes your ready to browse or work. One thing i would of liked to see is a more detailed guide on how to work or pair my MacBook Pro with my Apple Watch 2, iPhone 7 and iPad Pro 9.7 LTE i feel like they could of added a little bit more information especially for new users like myself. but overall it does what it suppose to do and that to get you up and running...

Simple and useful. i just read this book. Well, as all of the apple’s products MacBook Pro is great too. I'm sure that if you buy macbook and don’t read this book, you can absolutely work and use it as well. Because its really powerful and simple. this book is great too if you want to know more.

Mac Book Pro. Very satisfying

Must read!. This book will help you for first time users to very experienced users. The MacBook Pro is so sophisticated, this book has the answers.

Extremely helpful!. After reading this step by step book i now feel comfortable, and confident while using my new MacBook. if you arent sure about how to use a Mac , then give this a try. Only took about 15 mintues.

MacBook Pro Essentials Review. Great reference to appreciating and understanding a new MacBook Pro system!

Informative and considering. Pros - Intuitive - Multiple solutions to end-users - Relexig to read - Caring about users’ different situations - Easy to operate for every one with informative introductions Cons - A little bit long - No video demonstration - Accessories being too expensive

More hype than info. There's a lot of rah-rah sales pitch about the great things you can do with the Pro, but not so much information about how things actually work. That would be okay if there were links to deeper information, but there aren't. For example, what about syncing with an iPad? How do I do it? What does that do to Photos? If I delete a picture on my iPad, what happens when I sync? Or another: how do I customize the look of my windows on the Pro? If I search for "Windows" on MacHelp, I get lots of information about Microsoft Windows on a Mac, which is something else.

The Knowledge You Gain. This book was very informative. It gives you the nuts and bolts of how to use the MacBook Pro. What is especially helpfulare the tips that are given you throughout the explanations of the sections. Pictures and diagrams help clarify anything that might not be understood in the written word. Overall, this was a very helpful book

As a new user, very helpful!. I don’t normally read user manuals because they often become too complicated too fast, but this was great! Gave me lots of good info, in an easy to understand way!

MAC INFO GUIDE. What a person should know about MAC.. I feel that it was very informative! I learned a lot. It can be challenging at the same time. I think that APPLE did good with this guide. I would recommend it, especially to those who are new to a MAC. It does a good job on explaining the information leading to a good amount of knowledge about the MAC.

Excellent!!!. Excellent book! I find myself coming back and reading sections if I'm stumped on something. Highly recommend!

Everything i needed to know. grerat to have this book on my computer its very helpful and will be a great resource moving forward!

Worth the time? YEP.. read it! it’s worth the time to get to know what you just spent money investing in. INVEST in yourself to know what is and can be at our fingertips!! I did and that was a well spend 20 min.

Very helpful. I found this online book to be extremely informative without being too dry and uninteresting. It is full of useful tricks and tips. I will definitely keep this handy and revisit when using the different features of the MacBook Pro.

I’m a bot. Never thought I could mentally push an app like that

Useless. This entire “book” is basically a 150 page advertising flyer that tells us how great the Mac and all its features are. Doesn’t give any clue as to how to do these things other than contact Apple in one form or another.

Sanjeevkumar s. Thanks

Review. I just Got it, Trying To Find my Way out How to reach genuine Content. not so proud btw; security should be a pre-requisite. when you make the softwares; it is becoming a coders challenge; The Phone is for me a way of communication; just like a mail, a call, an sms. I am not gonna explain much; but i must tell you a relevant truth: The Phone Call: The SMS; The mIRC all existed since they did; and you added nothing. Communications: This is the field you work in; you can code for anyone, anything from games to softwares, to any machine, etc....and But here is Communication Field: This is a Phone; when you wanna expand its usage; secure it for people who buy phones simply because they need to communicate.

Concise, helpful and useful book. Reading this book has been a very helpful read for me to ‘unpack’ all the goodies in my new laptop. The content was neither too technologically boggling nor confusing. A lot of my questions were answered by the read through the book. A nice balance of concise with helpful links out for further study. Great job and I feel empowered and ready-to-go with my new Mac. Thanks very much.

Great reference book for new Mac users. Easy to follow and understand how to navigate and use your new MacBook Pro. I keep it saved in my iBooks on all my devices for a quick reference.

New to Mac. Very helpful! I have an iPhone so it wasn’t completely confusing. After setting up I am able to go back and look things up! I always say ‘I know just enough about computers to be dangerous!’

Apple Makes It Easy, Albeit With Its Share of Frustrations. Apple definitely has the essentials packed into this guide. For most folks, it’ll be all they need for educational material as they get to know the ins-and-outs of their new Thunderbolt-lined MacBooks, and it’ll certainly serve as a quick reference guide thereafter. For a manual, it’s light reading. It’s concise in its general instruction and its explanation of features, and it’s presented in an engaging narrative, which certainly helps keep the yawning at bay. My only complaint is that it is choc-full of instructional references that pull you away from your learning by forcing you to venture into distant sections of the guide to get answers. The circuitousness becomes frustrating after a while, but with the right bookmarks set up, you can find an easy work-around.

MacBook Pro. The Book was very helpful.

Decent. Would have enjoyed some more information on how to do more advanced tasks or where to find information about such things. A decent starting board none the less.

Detailed. Its a pretty good book, specifically for people new to Mac. I’m not new to Mac, but i still found it very useful, there are many things that i didnt know, now i know :)

Square one. I can’t even work out how to download it. I’ve got ibooks 1.10 on a day-old MacBook Pro, my eigth Mac since 1989. I get the impression that the decision makers at Apple are ever further removed from those who actually needs use their products. We’ve gone from intuitive to insuperable in a decade.

Meh. This is ridiculously limited if you consider that a a photo camera would come with a 400 odd page manual.

very good. this is my first time to buy a MacBook and i have been an apple fan for over 5 years. macbook pro is an excellent product and this essentials are good to read because it teaches me a lot of things that i didn’t know before. i recommend it!

Cover of book shows screen background of previous OS. Contents are fine but cover did not update when I updated this book. How do I fix this?

Does what it promises.. As a book labelled ‘Essentials’ this does just what it says and sets you up to start exploring further.

MacBook Pro Essentials Review. This user guide is very well formatted and easy to understand, it is very easy to find any information you are looking for with detailed instructions of use.

It’s not that bad. It’s ok. Quite helpful

Corrupted!. I would download this book, but it is corrupted. Not very Apple-like to have the “help guide” corrupt, Apple.

Should be emailed with purchase. I dropped a star; as fore mentioned in title. It really is a 5 star work. Very informative with the ease of bookmarks for info that might matter down the track. Would be far better as the first thing you are presented with, rather than the randomnimity of help menus and jazzed up stuff of features, when nuts and bolts is the core to getting off to the right start. It is what would have been best in my email on day of purchase while I waited for delivery.

Great guide!. If all else fails, read the instructions! Definately worth a read to learn new features shortcuts etc

Can’t get the full book. Can’t download the full book. The sample works (and is helpful), but not the full book. A pity.

Amazing Guide. This guide is amazing to get to know your MacBook Pro better, and it definitely helped me learn what all the different apps did, and how to use the Touch Bar. Thank you Apple for writing this, and I hope that you’ll update this every year with the release of new MacBook.

ms. Terrific book. Clear, easy info to follow. Thanks.

Has everything you can think of. This user guide had everything that I could’ve thought of, packed full of actual informative content. I would like if Apple makes the whole User Guide thing more easy to navigate to find everything, though.

Adsterra is the most preferred ad network for those looking for an alternative to AdSense. Adsterra is the ideal choice for new sites with low daily traffic. In order to advertise on the site in Adsterra, like other ad networks, a certain traffic limit, domain age, etc. is required. There are no strict rules. Sign up!

Does the job. It could be more detailed, but it gives a good, quick overview of the main points. Useful for PC users crossing over to the Dark Side.

Useful and Detailed. As the title says, this guide supplies most of the fine details hidden in the hardware and software. Common shortcuts helped me out, and the safety information surprising revealed measures I'd never think about from common sense. If you're looking for tips to harness efficiency on your Mac, this isn't the place to be. There are hundreds of YouTube tutorials and websites that give more insider knowledge than this ever will. If you have no experience using a Mac, or a computer at all, this book has my deepest recommendations.

Student. It is a short useful manual for new commers to Mac world
