No Mac is an island. Computing in the modern world is almost synonymous with Internet connectivity and the ability for one computer to communicate with others, whether down the hall or across the globe. Mac OS X is a thoroughly modern operating system, with professional-grade support for TCP/IP (the communication mechanism that runs the Internet) and a suite of full-featured applications that give you the tools you need to make the most of the Internet—use email, browse the Web, and much more. Whether your Mac is connected to the global network using a dial-up modem, or whether you have several computers in your household or office that are connected to each other in a LAN, Mac OS X can handle it all.
