Hi everyone, I recently switched over to the wonderful world of Mac and have no plans of switching back. I bought a standard macbook and everything has been great so far. I do have one difficulty coming up. Next quarter, I'm taking a statistics class that is requiring the use of Excel and it's statistical analysis add-on. So far in school, I've been able to get away with using neo-office or other shareware programs (as an aside, the robustness of shareware Mac applications has been a pleasant surprise) to avoid buying Office for Mac. I do have a copy of XP and Office XP for Windows but I've avoided loading bootcamp and XP or buying parallels and loading XP because I like the way OS X has handled everything. I guess my options are: 1. Load bootcamp, XP, and Office on my macbook (+) free to me (-) major bloat on my system, PITA to switch to bootcamp for one program 2. Buy parallels, load XP and Office (+) more convienent (-) cost and bloat 3. Buy Office for Mac (+) convenience, decent programs though use limited (-) cost, was hoping instead to buy iWorks because Keynote kicks ass 4. Other???? Am I missing anything? Thanks for your responses!!!
