This is my first post, I am considering moving from the Windows O/S to Apple and I was hoping that someone could advise me if there is an Apple equivalent to MS Encarta?
Thanks in anticipation.

iMacs and iBooks ship with "World Book".

I have both on my Windows laptop and I think Encarta is a lot better than World Book. However, I have not seen the Mac version of World Book. The interface on it might be better.

Or you can get Encyclopedia Britannica if you so desire.

Thanks for that information, I think Britannica is the way to go.
