Part of Mac OS X Lion For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Want to know how to find out about all things Macintosh? Hop onto the Web to check these Apple-related sites and stuff your brain with information about your Mac and Mac OS X Lion:

  • The Apple support site and Knowledge Base are treasure troves of tech notes, software update information, troubleshooting tips, and documentation for most Apple products.

  • MacInTouch is the preeminent Mac news and information site, full of tips, hints, and troubleshooting information. Many users consider MacInTouch (along with MacSurfer and MacFixit) a must-read every day.

  • CNET Downloads, the site formerly known as VersionTracker, is the place to go to find freeware, shareware, and software updates for Mac OS X. If this site doesn’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.

  • Alltop aggregates information from dozens of great Mac-oriented Web sites and makes it easy to skim headlines and story summaries. You can even build your own custom version that contains only sites you want to see.

  • TidBITS bills itself as, “Apple news for the rest of us,” but there’s much more to TidBITS than just the news. You can also find thoughtful commentary, in-depth analysis, and detailed product reviews, written and edited by pros who really know the Apple ecosystem.
