Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When this arrived, I thought it would be yet another re-cobbled book from past bits in others but no - I was slightly taken aback to see 'new' stuff and importantly, helpful new stuff and within minutes of reading it I was on the laptop trying some of the hints and tips offered. I found quite a lot of useful and helpful bits that are worth applying and its all explained in easy to understand terms without assuming you are some 'compootah geek' and by going step by step, I was quite taken and realised a pile of 'other' guides etc. that are collecting dust on the bookshelf were nothing but paperweights in theory as they were so full of themselves in taking for granted you KNEW just about everything and their offering was the 'polish' if you like. I would recommend this book to anybody.

Verified Purchase
Well produced book at a reasonable price, however the subject matter moves on by the hour, so will quickly be outdated.
