    I might be purchasing a new iBook in a week or so. I would like to know, how much could I get for that free iPod on ebay or something. And should I get iWork and MS office or iWork. I dont know what iWork is. And what about iLife?

    iLife & iWork are both Apple software products - you can find their descriptions here.
    As for whether or not you should get MS Office, it depends entirely on what you do & what your needs are.

    Lastly, you could do a search on ebay for "iPod mini 4GB" - link here.
    It looks like there are several selling for "Buy It Now" at $179.

    Best wishes.

    Whilst I currently use XP, I will be purchasing MS Office for Mac. I use it at work and home and it will mean I can continue to do all I need to without any worries about compatibility.

    There are Mac users out there who will use alternatives - it's everyones personal opinion. Just remember some may use alternatives due to they love (or lack of it) for all things Microsoft ;) :D Office is a great package.

    Congratulations on the buy. :)

    iLife will come standard. Buy Office, it's great despite having the M word on the box. Don't bother with iWork, it's pretty young and an update is probably pretty imminent IMO although we haven't heard many rumours about it.
