Ive been freeing space from my macbook and i noticed iwork uses 1.92gb of my hard drive, id rather have that of free space. Id like to know if iwork is in the macbook cd i got, or if i can get it from apple or anything if i ever need to reinstall it.

I thought iWork came as a demo only on the Macbook?

In which case, you can just bin it. If you want to try it at a later date, you can probably pick up a new demo copy from somewheres....

You can reinstall off of the discs that came with your computer.

Did you have a serial number for it? Because if you did, you'll have to re-enter it since it's running as the demo when you install it again off the disc.

You'll need to purchase iWork from Apple to have a permanent working copy. If you had it pre-installed on your system by Apple when you ordered it, you should have the disks in your shipment packaging. If it's just a demo version, you can go ahead and erase it and do as the prior poster said.
