    Does anyone know where I can download the latest version of AppleWorks for free? I couldn't find it pre-loaded on my MBP.

    You still buy it from the Apple Store. Apple haven't shipped it with new macs for some years now. What parts of AppleWorks do you need to use?

    AppleWorks is $79 and available from AppleStore. It used to be bundled with the consumer Macs, but not, as far as I remember, the Pros.

    I would check out NeoOffice before I paid $79 for an essentially abandoned application, though... ;)

    I agree with this.

    AppleWorks gives you a great demonstration of System 7 technology from the 1990s, I'm struggling to see how this product fits in with the super modern operating system we have today.

    That said, Apple has yet to replace certain components (drawing (sort of with pages), painting, spreadsheet and simple database).

    If you are willing to pay for a productivity suite, wait until Monday when Steve announces that iWork 2007 is shipping today.

    I expect that it will not be overly expensive.

    whats wrong with Microsoft Office for Mac it works great for me. you can get the student edition for like $100 ish. NeoOffice is good though too because its a complete office for free! I would check that out first then go to microsoft office for mac!

    Open Office

    www.openoffice.org

    Just as good as AppleWorks/M$ Office.

    I'd recommend doing what I'm doing; using Open Office until Microsoft release Office 2007:Mac - which will be released in the next 3-4 months (hopefully).

    Every business uses MS Office and it is pretty much a standard now, so I'd get using it if I were you.

    Standard version of Office:Mac will cost a bout $200, which isn't that much really, and after all, it is the only decent product Microsoft have made.
