    Does AppleWorks come standard on any of the PowerBooks?

    Duff-Man says....right or wrong aside, Appleworks is considered a "consumer" application and as such is only included om the "consumer" targeted Macs like eMacs, iMacs, iBooks...for the "pro" machines like Powerbooks and Powermacs it is assumed I guess that most will shell out for M$ Office...personally I think they may as well include Appleworks with every computer though...even if you are a "pro" user you may have a kid or something where Appleworks fits the bill perfectly - OS X *is* a multi-user environment....oh yeah!

    Especially since the cost to Apple of including it is, er, um... nothing.

    Well, technically, perhaps there might be some cost to Apple support to field questions they wouldn't have to bother with otherwise, but it's bound to be minimal.

    Yes, but the #1 question is:

    "Why didn't I get AppleWorks?"
