    I liked that passage too... "eerie" because it works... They compared several other windoze boxes and found just about everything lacking in one area or another.

    I'm surprised the worst thing he mentioned was Appleworks :)

    He mentions sounding sad and maybe shocked that he would need to shell out another 400 for Word. Does MS Word come standard on new Wintel boxes?

    Several of the others had works, and two had a year old version of Word. None had full office.

    Some Wintel boxes include Word. Not many though. PC users though can upgrade from Works to Office unlike us being able to upgrade AppleWorks to Office.....for us there is no such upgrade. I think the upgrade price is like $159 bucks.

    PC reviewers never do understand Macs so why should we expect differently LOL!
