This Which guide to laptops and mobile devices is a great guide for total beginners. It has sections on laptops, tablets, smartphones, e-book readers and a general section on getting online. There is also a section called 'Protection' which covers everything from passwords to laptop bags. The book is very clear and well-designed. There are plenty of photos and screenshots. The text is clearly aimed at beginners. Each section is short and to the point and mercifully free of jargon. There is a 'Jargon Buster' glossary at the back to help total beginners. I run Silver Surfer courses and would definitely recommend this book to the people I teach. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is already reasonably comfortable with the internet though as they could easily find all this information online.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I bought this book for my Mum and Dad who now in their 70's have entered the digital age. Last Christmas we put them on the internet and bought them a laptop. All I can say is since doing this I have visited and spoken to my parents more than at any other time in my life! My mother thought an email was typed and the Post Office printed it out and posted it! The times she phoned me up to tell me that she had sent me an email which I had already got, I've lost count. I have lost more hair over trying to get my parents to understand the internet than all the other worries put together in my life. So, along came this book and being from `Which' I hoped it would be the guide to getting my life back I needed. Well so far so good, not so many phone calls now and the emails make some sort of sense and my father even has some sort of an idea of what a hard drive is! Basically the book is for anyone who has little if any clue about how laptops and technology works. The diagrams and explanations are good and the book leads on into a discussion about the capabilities of Tablet PC's and Smartphones. I wish this book had been around last Christmas, I did not see it on the shelves. My Dad has now managed to set up a simple website with the help of some friends about the local area and its history. This book has been great and I can recommend it to anyone who has no clue about laptops, smartphones and Tablet PC's
As an upadte my Father has now managed to link his laptop wirelessly to the BT hub, before it wason a desk and cabled. He wanted to use the laptop in the garden and worked out how to log the machine wirelessly all on his own!

This is a good book and a good buy for any computer novice or technology averse person worried about being sold a shelf blocker by a keen PC/Laptop salesperson.

All of the information is relevant but the new/latest i3, i5, and i7 processors are not covered but don't be too concerned, anyone needing the information in this book probably won't be wanting to pay the money for a laptop with one of these processors.

The book also covers all the Apple products including the ipad, ipod, iphone and the laptop range, giving good and bad comparisons with product alternative where required.

There is even sections covering Wi-Fi and security protection and how to get the best out of your chosen device.

Overall a recommended buy and cheap considering the potential minefield of problems and mistakes buying a new computer can present not to mention the used car salesman attitude of many sales people in conjunction with unscrupulous companies trying to shift all that obsolete stock wrapped in a pretty package.

If your thinking of buying a new mobile device this is a good place to start and just might ensure you buy what you want and not what they want to sell you.

Have found the which books very informative - the problem with this book is that it will need updating quite quickly. If you are reading this review with a laptop running windows 7 then it's a worthwhile purchase. If you are reading this review in 2012 then avoid like the plague - it will be out of date. So in short - buy the book before feb/march 2012 and it's a great buy, buy after the release of windows 8 then you are wasting your money.

This book includes information about laptops, tablet, smartphones and e-book readers. It also includes information about accessing the Internet and how to protect yourself online, including how to keep a home wi-fi network secure. There is also a glossary to help you make sense of the associated jargon. Apart from this the book is jargon-free and written in plain English.

It is suitable for PC & Internet beginners or novices or maybe for people who want to understand the basics of the different devices that have appeared in recent years as alternatives to the desktop PC as a way to access email or the Internet, such as tablets or smartphones.
It would not offer much to anyone who is already comfortable with the devices covered or general use of the Internet.
Similarly, anyone who is thinking of buying any of the devices covered would need a little more detail before making any decisions, but this book should provide the knowledge and confidence needed to seek the more detailed information elsewhere (Internet or shop) and should enable you to narrow your interest to one or two types of device that would be suitable for you.

The biggest challenge for this book is that as technology moves on so quickly the information in any book of this nature will quickly become out of date. Which? need to update this book regularly to keep it up to date. At the time that I am writing this book it has only been out for about 6 months, but if you are thinking of buying a copy you should check that the edition available to you is fairly recent.
