    I hope this is the right place for this. I have 2 questions I hope someone can help with.
    1) Is "text edit" the only word processor that come with the mac book pro?
    2) When I burn pics to a CD it will not allow me to burn anymore to that CD even if I only burned only a few pics. Can I get around that? I remember with my PC I could add pics to a CD until it was full.:confused:
    Thanks in advance

    1. TextEdit is not a full-blown word processor, but more like Notepad for Windows. Yes, it's the only one that comes by default with Mac OS X.
    2. Some CDs are writeable only once (CD-R), some are writeable multiple times (CD-RW). Which kind are you using?

    1. Free Office alternative: NeoOffice.org
    You can also look into buying iWork or MS Office for mac.

    2. You can burn new things to cd. You might have to use third party thing such as toast.

    Adding on...

    1) Yes, but unlike notepad/wordpad for Windows, you can open doc/docx documents and even view images correctly.

    2) Only if the CD is CD-RW

    Dont forget that the worlds first - and arguably best - text editor, vi ships with the Mac.
