MAC compute users-Help!


Recommended Posts

smile124.gifI was hoping there were some BDWers who could help me decide which software to purchase for my macbook. I'm a now full time student S&M.gif

and 3 online classes + one I attend in person. I have a macbook and a dell xps desktop. I want to get software that will make things easier for me when I am up late at night on my laptop doing schoolwork so I don't have to use my pc and disturb my FI while he's sleeping, and emailing files to my desktop is not convenient and causes me more time to edit. So, which software would you get..Pages or 2008 Microsoft office for MACs? Plus, I would love to be able to do cool things like on MS Publisher for which I'm using a trial run on my PC.


Hopefully someone can help...Thanks!

Yikes, I was afraid of that! Ihave the entry level laptop, I hope I have enough memory. I'm only literate in websurfing...LOL

The discount rocks, I received 10% off my macbook!

Thanks. I'll have to keep that in mind since I have pics I will want to adjust after the wedding.
