Hi everybody. I don't mean to ask the same questions that've been asked by everyone else, but I've got a couple of questions. Currently, I'm running an IBM computer; it's pretty nondescript so I don't think it's deserving of a full introduction. Before I go off to college specifically, in a another month or so, when the educational discount kicks in I'll be buying a 12" PowerBook, maybe even a 15" if I can get enough money together for it. I'm going to school for writing, and I need the word processing application I'll be using to be very comprehensive. I know that Microsoft Office (which includes Word) has a Mac version, and I was looking into that... but then I read that Office has a habit of being slow and shutting down on the user. And part of the reason I'll be switching to Mac is so that these things don't happen as frequently. What is Pages like? Is it easy to customize? Is there a spell/grammar checker? A thesaurus? Is there something similar to Word's AutoCorrect (which fixes accent marks and the likes automatically; ie: cliche into cliché and so on)? Can anyone tell me if there are any unique features to Pages that Word doesn't really have? Is Office for Mac really so bad? It's not that I'm uncomfortable with switching (far from it!), but when it gets to text documents, I like to know how everything works... As far as the Mac hardware questions go, I just would like to know how easy it was for some of you to adjust to the keyboard. I've tried out various laptops over the years and sometimes the keys are nearly flat. I'm sure I can adjust to that, but it will make it difficult and I'm going to be writing quite a bit next year. Also, as far as speed goes, I've become pretty accustom to multi-tasking. That is, I'll often use PhotoShop, iTunes, MSN Messenger, Firefox and sometimes even PowerDVD all at once... How good is the low-end PowerBook at handling this type of thing? I don't think I can afford a 15" PowerBook at this point, much less a 17" one, so if it's not great at working all that at once, I may just have to cut back. Still, it would be nice if it could accommodate everything. I'm sure I had more questions to ask, but these are the only two coming to mind at the moment. Thanks for your time, everyone!
