Well guys way back in Jan. my pc burnt out and died, because of economic reasons I haven't been able to buy a new computer till now that and the fact I've been using the comps at school. Anyway for that past couple months I've looked up info on apple computers and the Mac platform and decided to make the switch, with the straw that broke the camels back named pallidium. So here's my dilema, I need a laptop because of presentations since I hate to borrow peoples comp's since they are just so personal. Well im looking at the Ibook for my needs but, from what I've read it should be upgraded question is when? Also office v.X is a possibilty, but I would like some feedback from AppleWorks user's if it is truly compatible with word .doc's.
