    iWork or Microsoft Office?
    Heading to college in the fall and need to know what word, powerpoint, etc. to buy. I already have neooffice and decided fairly quickly that I would rather just dish out the money for an actual system.

    Any recommendations on which I should get?

    I have both and it works out pretty well. Pages is great but takes a little getting used to. Keynote is definitely better than powerpoint but if you are doing some hardcore word processing then I use word.

    It just depends on your needs. There are a couple of threads on this topic if you want to search.
