So I got a new macbook, core 2, and MS office is ridiculously slow. Is this because it is the 'test drive' or because it is not a universal binary. If it is the latter I won't buy it and I will get iwork, if it is just an issue of my version not being registered then I may buy it. I have to say that I do not like pages as much as word. Keynote seems to be pretty good. But i need excel or an excel like program and spreadsheet does not do it for me. Anyway, sorry to rant.
