    Hi, I just bought a MacBook and was wondering if I should buy iWork now or wait for the end of WWDC to see if they will release anything? I really need a good word processing software and text edit just doesnt do the job good enough. :cool:

    I recommend the free NeoOffice :)

    If you want a slideshow app, Keynote is great. I personally use mainly Pages, and then transfer to NeoOffice if I need more complex stuff and compatibility with MS:Office...

    I think the question was whether the OP should buy now or wait. Personally, I'd wait -- and take advantage of the 30 day preview period on the copy of iWork that came preinstalled on your MacBook in the meantime.

    iwork is very good but, i suggest you wait for the new upgrade of iwork and use neo-office for now. at least wait for steve jobs's announcements at WWDC 07 in the next few days!

    Expect an iWork upgrade, iWork 2007, to be announced and ship tomorrow. You will undoubtedly be able to download a TestDrive of the new version as soon as it ships.

    Why are you so convinced of this? I've noticed you say it several times.
