    Hey!

    Should I order any of the preinstalled software packages, or would I be better off buying them elsewhere?

    I know I would probably use Microsoft Office, but what is iWork, will I benefit from it, do I need it? :confused:

    Well, what will I be using my iMac for you wonder?

    I'll be using it for the Adobe CS5 Premium Design Package

    Graphic Design, Web, Music, Photos, Browsing, Games, College Work

    So... are these pre-installed packages for me, or should I save my money with the option of buying them somewhere else if I ever need them?

    Thanks xx ♥

    [Edit] Oops I meant iWork, not iLife!

    iWork is similar to Office for Mac. It includes three apps, Pages (Word), Numbers (Excel) and Keynote (PowerPoint). There is a free trial of Office for Mac and iWork so I wouldn't by them yet. Try them out and then buy what you think is the better.
