I'm switching from M$ to Mac and decided on the iMac. I considered the notebooks but I'll just get one later since I can use my M$ laptop until then. I have a question for any writers (or those with first-hand knowledge) about which program to get with my iMac. I want iWork '08 because I don't want anything to do with M$ anymore. That said, my question is this: Do you have any problems formatting manuscripts and/or magazine articles in a way that's compatible with editors who use Word? Or... Should I just "get over it" and get Office 2008 when it comes out? Will this product make iWork obsolete? It's supposed to be pretty powerful. Apple wasn't trying to make a serious competition for Word, anyway. If I get iWork '08 will I eventually regret it? M$ seems dead-set on keeping their Mac software going strong. Since most people tend to use Word, should I just get Office '08? Now, for the pricing question. I was going to wait until after MacWorld 2008 in mid-January before I bought my iMac. (I'm waiting until January for tax purposes.) But, I just can't see Mac bringing out improvements for the iMac this go 'round. (And if they did, it would be a very minor one.) My question is this: Do you think iMac prices will go UP after MacWorld and I would be better of getting one beforehand, or should I wait and see if they lower the price a bit? Also, if I buy on in the beginning of January and they do lower the price after MacWorld, can I just bring in my receipt and have them make up the difference in price (since it's within 30 days)?
