I just purchased a 13" MacBook Pro Retina and am still waiting on peripherals to connect it to the Internet. I do not have Microsoft Office for Mac on the new MacBook Pro Retina. So I will be exclusively using Pages, as provided by Apple, if possible in order to reduce additional expense. I understand that documents created with Pages can be exported to Microsoft Word format. What happens to documents in Microsoft Word format that I receive by e-mail? Can Pages read them on the MacBook Pro Retina? What happens to documents in Microsoft Word format on my current flash drives that were created on a Dell laptop when they are plugged into the MacBook Pro Retina? Can Pages read them? What about documents in Microsoft Word format on the hard drive of my old Dell laptop? I was told, at some point by the Apple Store specialist, that they can transfer them (into a readable format, I am assuming, using Pages) onto the MacBook Pro Retina? Does this make sense? Thanks for the help.
