apples thing is called pages and its about 80 dollars. you get it online or at an apple store or reseller. neooffice is completely non Microsoft and free. download and see if this is for you. Im pretty sure this is exactly what your looking for.

Check OpenOffice.org also.
If you can afford it, iWork with Pages, Numbers and Keynote is well worth the money.

Neo/OpenOffice, and Abiword as far as free applications (OpenOffice needs X11)
Zoho Office, and Google Docs for free online services.
Pages with iWork for payware applications.

Pages, part of iWork, is awesome! The $60 pricetag (through amazon) was well worth it!

Also check out Bean. It's a very simple, but full-featured Word Processor that is also compatible with Word docs. I have iWork '08, NeoOffice and MS Office on my machine, but I often find myself coming back to Bean as I like it's clean/simplistic interface.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I use Pages, on a daily bases for writing my reports. It still has to mature a bit, although I love its simple streamline interface, faster start-time than Word, especially Office 08. When I have to export to .Doc format, no one has ever mentioned any problems reading my reports, and most I'm sure don't even know I am using a Mac with Pages..

I actually went through the trouble of buying word through my college for student prices it was a longer proccess because my details and the colleges details had to go through and when it came they came to the music block where I live and gave me the good news.

The whole music block teachers have word aswell because I like them
