    Hey everyone, I just got my powerbook. I was wondering why i dont have apple works on my laptop. I got a 15 inch powerbook. I only got 2 disks with it and it wasnt on either. Also i dont have world book either.

    I think they stoped shipping Apple Works with there laptops. When i got my iBook 9 months ago it had one with it, i had to change it and this one came without it.

    I suggest you get MS Office 2004 insted of Apple Works, its just better.

    AppleWorks and World Book are only included on consumer systems iMac, eMac and iBook. Basically they're not "professional" software so you don't get them on the pro systems. Check the included software on the Powerbook specs page.

    Yeah I wondered this too.

    My sis' imac also got a copy of graphic converter free (I couldn't swap the license to my comp though :( ).

    I use Appleworks for tons of stuff, even photoshop!

    The drawing thing works well enough, without paying for illustrator. Just select all and copy for rasterization.

    It's just an all-purpose 'just works' copy of office minus powerpoint and minus $500.
