Well, as the title states, I am kinda having a slight dilemma. I am hoping to hear from people that have had good and bad experiences with both Office and iWork. Rather not just have a bunch of complaints... I searched the forums here and found a lot of complaints for Office, but not many good things (which is typical for a forum I know). I have the option at my school to purchase either iWork for $39, or Office 08 for $50 (in about 2 weeks). So price will have no affect on my decision. Also, I do not and will not have to run Macros, so that will not be a deciding factor. I am more interested in RAM usage, CPU usage, how well the program runs, and its core features. I currently have the iWork trial, but it just seems to be such a light program compared to what I am use to from my Windows days. If there was a Office '08 trial I would just try that out, and then figure it out myself, but without the trial I will depend on those of you who have used both. Why did you choose the one you did?
