    Open Office is a full office suite that is free and will handle the word files for you.

    Hi Buddy,

    There is no legal way to get Word without paying for it - any such activity would be theft and very naughty.

    There are, however, some good alternatives. You might want to search the forums for something like 'iwork office' and see what you get. Basically there is Apple's own office suite 'iwork 08' which you can get for around £55. It's pretty darn good and does everything you are likely to need at Uni. There are some free alternatives e.g. NeoOffice which are totally free as as long as you don't need the more advanced features, they work great.

    Hope that's some use. I used Macs all through Uni - if I can be of any help feel free to PM me.

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    office 08 ran a whopping $70 at uni last week (that's what about 35 quid right now?)

    Actually, you might want to check with your school to see if it subsidizes Office for its students. My undergrad university had some great deals on software, like $50 for a copy of Windows/OS X and $65 for a copy of Office.
