Appleworks... should I get it?
Hi. I am debating whether I should buy Appleworks. I'll mostly be using it to write reports and labs, etc... just school stuff. The thing is, I'll be exchanging documents between my computer and the school's computer, which uses microsoft Office. Does appleworks have a powerpoint type feature? Any reason why I shouldn't get Appleworks rather than Office?

go for it
The newest verion of AppleWorks alows you to save your files in Office format. Even MS Works files! It will be a little more work to convert them and stuff... but it will save you a lot of money. AppleWorks 6 is kind of old now... I would guess that version 7 may come out soon. Also... if your looking for a cheeper solution. I would look into StarOffice from Sun. I beleave you can do all the same file conversions with MS stuff as you can in AppleWorks. There is a beta version of it out for OS X now. It has been arround for a long time for Linux and UNIX. Now its comming to The BSD baised OS X.
I personaly use Office and Appleworks. I use Office most of the times and AppleWorks for when I just cant get it to look right in Office.

If what you produce has to work in a Windows/Office world then your life will be easier with Office. The X version is very easy to use and all the output gets opened by the Windows Office without a hitch.
The only reason to go with AppleWorks is cost, it is much cheaper. There are ways of useing the documents in Windows Office but it is not nontrivial.
So, if it's cost - AppleWorks it does everything - even presentations.
Compatibility in the windows world - then go with Office v.X
