Lion is Apple's Latest version of Mac OS X (10.7). Bring your OS X skills "Back To The Mac" by watching this 97 minute tutorial by macProVideo.com Star Trainer and Mac Guru Francesco Schiavon.
Mac OS X 10.7 Lion has been referred to by Apple as "Back to the Mac". That's because iOS took a lot from the original Mac OS X and built on the unique touch interface of the iOS devices. In OS 10.7 Lion, Apple brings a lot of their iOS experience "back to the Mac". Specially the interaction with touch surfaces like the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad have become a central feature of Mac OS, but there's also a whole lot more ...
This course covers the main features that were added to Mac OS X Lion, and how to use them every day while working with your computer. From some of the new additions to the Finder, like "All My Files" searching and overlay scrollbars, passing through the interaction using gestures, how fullscreen applications work, accessing every visible window on your Mac via Mission Control, getting super quick access to all your Apps with Launchpad, saving your work with Auto Save, Versions and Resume, and a brief introduction to the Mac App Store for quick access to the latest Mac software.

This gave me some insight to what Lion offers before actually downloading it. I like these tutorials by Francesco Schiavon, I have a number of them and would recommend these lesson to everyone who has yet to venture into Lion.
Even as a seasoned Mac user I found this informative. I can see how someone new to Mac or maybe someone who skipped Leopard/Snow Leopard could find the pace a bit brisk. Also I actually liked how the instructor didn't go into too many little details and covered some of the high points for most everyday users.
Fairly new to OS X here. My MacBook Pro had Snow Leopard pre installed so upgrading to Lion was a major step. I'm loving Lion and this video has been a great help in understanding the structure and function of my Mac. Easy to watch an as always with macprovideos/tutorials very professionally presented.
As dany and Karen mentioned, a lot of new features was not mentioned. Out of 250 new features only about 68 are mentioned. But I will say what was mentioned was very well done.
This video is very useful and helpful to me. I find myself often lost when I upgrade to newer version of OS and it helps me to watch an expert explaining the new features. I am a long user of macprovideo. They saved me tons of hours of figuring out on my own...
Well done. The discussion and demonstrations were very informative. Core Lion as sues you are familiar with Snow Leopard, so that means you don't have to wade through lessons you are familiar with. It is short enough too keep the interest right up there. A better system of items listened to would be helpful, for those of us who might forget where we were.
The tutorial assumes a higher level of computing ability than I have (in my 70s and self trained), therefore some of the tutorials were above my head. I also found that the trainer moved a bit fast through complicated things and moved the cursor too quickly for me to assimilate the knowledge imparted. I still learnt some things which were very valuable however and the lower grade I rated the course does not reflect the course itself but more it's relevance to me personally. Trying to cover widely differing levels of computing ability seems a bit ambitious for one course. A second, slower more simplified course on Lion would have been helpful. Not everyone who uses a Mac did IT at school!
Tutorial was a OK with the new functions of Lion if you are new to Apple, but not complete enough if you are moving from Snow Leopard. It did not discuss AirDrop, Filevault or many of the trackpad swiping and scrolling tips.
Loved the video, just what I needed to get started.
great course for first impressions of lion. maybe a bit more 'new tricks' would be nice. but then again, it's a core course i suppose.
Tutorial was a good start into the new functions of Lion, although not complete. Among things I missed Filevault, Airdrop
Very helpful and well recommended to get the most of Lion-or at least to get started....
I enjoyed listening to the tutorial although it was sometimes difficult to understand the narrator'
Your video tutorial for Lion gave me a great head start into learning all the new features of the operation system. These videos are invaluable to me. Thanks so much for your work on them.
Good review of what is new. Able to go at own timing as with all the MacProVideos. Good for those of us who have used Macs > 20 years. Never give anything a 5 except for a few renderings of Handel's Messiah.
This such an easy tutorial to follow. It flows well from one aspect of the software to another. It's delivered with experience which brings with it a confidence that you will learn quickly and easily and end up with a fuller working knowledge of this latest mac osx update. Brilliant
Again, another excellent tutorial by the macProVideo team. This tutorial is suitable for new Mac users starting out with Lion, and for people wanting to familiarize themselves with their new OS. For your reference, it took me 2 evenings of casual studying to finish. There were some funny moments in the video, and I also appreciate Francesco's honesty and critical observation on some of Lion's features. He's not just blindly selling you the OS, he also points out some of its weaknesses and downfall. Unfortunately, there were a few audio glitches in some videos, so I had to give it a 4. You can also learn and practice most of the lessons taught here for free at the Apple store, but it's also nice to just watch this at home. It's nice for us to have these options. Thanks again for the videos :)
