He's talking about a macbook so that link wont help.
Pressing Command-Shift-3 is quick - it snaps your entire screen and saves it as a .PNG file on the Desktop (.PDF if you're on Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar or 10.3 Panther).
Command-Shift-4 offers a bit more flexibility, as it turns your mouse cursor into a set of cross-hairs, allowing you to click and drag over just the region you want to capture.
An even cooler trick of this second shortcut is that, once you have enabled the cross-hairs, you can press the spacebar to enable a window capture mode; mouse over any open window and it will glow a light transparent blue. Click, and just that window is captured, with no background images or extra border padding. Again, it is saved as a .PNG to the Desktop. _________________
