Hey all, I am a former iMac user who decided (unwisely) to go the cheaper route and get a Vista notebook instead of a Macbook, and now am switching back to Macbook after bad experiences with Vista...anyway... 1) I've been looking at Macmall online because they seem to have good deals, but I have a few questions: is buying from Macmall the same as buying directly from Apple? For instance, do I still get the 1 year AppleCare warrenty included, is the RAM included Apple RAM, etc? 2) I have to do a lot of work with documents, moving back and forth between French and English...is there a French language pack for Leopard or Office 2008, as with Vista, to enable French spell checking and menus and the like? Is it free or does it have to be purchased? 3) I'd like to stick with Office 2008 to have full compatability, but I've seen the horror stories...is there a 30 day trial version of it available for download to try out? I couldn't find one on Microsoft's web site. Thanks so much!
