The Easy Way: Detto Technologies’ Move2Mac

The real challenge of switching is moving your files from your old PC to your new Macintosh. You have two options: doing it manually or buying a kit that will do the dirty work for you. (A third option is hiring someone knowledgeable to do the dirty work for you.) Although I will explain the hard way of doing things in detail in Chapter 4, I hope to make the method of letting the computers do the work as attractive as possible.

To that end, for purchasers of this book I’ve arranged a $10 rebate on Move2Mac (www.move2mac.com), a software package that makes the process of moving files and settings from Windows to Mac almost automatic (see the very back of the book for details). The software, which includes a special USB-to-USB cable, sells for $59.95 and is expensive only if you place no value on your personal time and frustration. There is also a version, priced at $69.95, containing a parallel (printer)-to-USB cable for PCs running Microsoft Windows 95 or that lack a USB port. After you purchase Move2Mac—at a retail store or online—send in the coupon to Detto for your rebate.
