It builds on previous versions of Mac OS X to provide an even more powerful and easy-to-use experience. Snow Leopard works with Apple's newest hardware (Intel-based Macs) to provide faster and more responsive applications that require fewer resource to install and run. The course covers everything from the basics of setting up your computer and its preferences to using your computer remotely (Back to My Mac), Time Machine to keep your files automatically up to date, and synchronization with your iPhone, iPod, and MobileMe account.
