A beginners video tutorial guide to using a Mac (for viewing on the iPad)
If you're new to the Mac or a recent Mac switcher, learn everything you need to know to get you up and running with your Mac, quickly and easily!
No previous Mac knowledge is assumed or required, as the tutorial takes you through all the key features of using your Mac.
WIth the iPad version, you can use the iPad next to your Mac and follow along, or move away from your Mac and relax with your iPad in your favourite armchair to focus on the tutorial without distraction. With the built in AirPlay support, you can even view the tutorial on your HDTV via an Apple TV.
Either way, the tutorial gives you full control using a specially designed video player, allowing you to control and navigate the tutorial easily, all at your own pace.
Once you've mastered SCOtutor for Mac or if you're not a complete beginner, check out the next tutorial in the SCOtutor series - SCOtutor for Lion (see the icon at the bottom of the sidebar for the iPad version, or search for SCOtutor in the Mac App Store for the Mac version).
