Any of you guys know any good and free word processing aps which will work on my MBP?
TextEdit has decent basic word processing and is included with Mac OS X, so it's a Universal Binary application.
OpenOffice is one, but it is not yet universal. I'm not sure that performance is critical in word processing, however. Features might be more important to you than speed.
AbiWord isn't Universal either.
Well TextEdit doesn't really do it for me. I found an OpenOffice Universal version. Beta though but I'll give it a try.
Still say Pages or Word. For the $79 for iWork, it's more than worth it. If you can try it first, you'll see what I mean.
Although if youre gonna shell out some dough you might as well go with word. But along the free lines textedit does pretty much everything.
I've been a happy TextEdit user for years... and have put up a number of pages on my sites about the app (here, here and here).
Usually if I need something more than TextEdit I'll be moving up to a page layout application rather than a more feature rich word processor.
