New Macintosh class
Macintosh Beyond Basics Training
In Macintosh Beyond Basics Training we take students to the next step from Macintosh Essential Training. This class is designed for people who have mastered the basics and are looking for ways to use their Macs more efficiently.
The next suite of classes has been scheduled to begin on 28 February 2015. For more Details go to the Macintosh Beyond Basic page.
MAGIC accepts donations and class deposits using a PayPal account that has been established for the club. To make a donation, go to our donation page.
Need a Mentor or help with your Mac Problems
Sometimes you just cannot wait until a MAGIC meeting to try and solve a problem and need to find a mentor or problem solver on Whidbey Island. Here is a page with some suggestions.
iWorks '13 and Pages 5 problems
Many people are having all kinds of issues with the recent release of iWorks '13, which includes Pages 5, Keynote, and Numbers. It turns out that these applications have been completely rewritten and do not have the functionality of previous versions. Apple say they will correct all the problems over the next six months. Meantime we have produced a page of tricks and tips that will get you back working again with the older versions. You will find it on this web page.
The MAGIC MacBook, projector, screen, and iPad 2 are available for members use

There are many ways to dispose of your old computer equipment that are environmentally acceptable. MAGIC offers the chance to swap, sell, and buy equipment with other members - see the Swap Page of this site. Island Recycling in Freeland and Coupeville will accept all electronic equipment for recycling for a modest fee (about $10 per pound) - they can be contacted at (360) 331-1727.
