"Take Control of Buying a Mac" Updated -- The last Macworld Expo in San Francisco saw the release of the Mac mini, and Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference last month brought us the news that Apple would be transitioning the Macintosh to use CPUs from Intel in place of IBM's PowerPC chip. I've now updated my "Take Control of Buying a Mac" ebook to take account of these important events. The update also builds the Mac mini into the buying discussions; updates details that have changed since the previous update; and includes information about Apple's Government Stores as a way for U.S. local, state, and federal government employees to buy Macs at a discount. Those who have purchased the ebook may access the free update by clicking the Check for Updates button on the cover of the ebook; for anyone who hasn't yet bought a copy, it's $5 and includes a coupon worth $5 off any order at Small Dog Electronics, making the book free if you buy through Small Dog.
