iWork is not really an office suite. It's somewhere between MS Publisher and MS Powerpoint, and as I understand, its sales are abysmal. Resellers are starting to give it away in certain circumstances. If you need word processing, defiately get MS Office.

IWork is actually quite good for the price. Pages is very compatible with Word, and presentation with Power Point. They really need to make a Spreadsheet for it in the future also, but for now if you do not need anything more than a Word Processor and Presentation program, Iwork is well worth it. So far all my word documents open with no problems....Dennis

If you need full Office compatibility and a ton features you'll never use then by all means go with Office. But if you want to show Microsoft that they aren't the only big software developer in the world, go with iWork.

i would say office. there really is no compatibility problems if you go with iwork. i have tried both. i would say go with office because you will be very familiar with it. in school they have macs and pc's. because i use office at home i am very comfortable on whatever computer anywhere.
