    Does Mac book come with Word, Excel, etc.
    Looking into surprising my wife with a Macbook. We have always used Windows based systems but I think it's time to try out Apple. Does the off the shelf Macbook come with Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint or is this an add on program?

    No, but you can always get NeoOffice or other free word processing suites, if you don't want to buy Office '08. Just a suggestion, though. I would prefer Office '08 but since I have to pay for my own things... yeah

    NeoOffice (<--clicky!)

    Open Office (free) is equivalent to MS Office:

    Word = Writer
    Excel = Calc
    PowerPoint = Impress
    Access = Base

    You can import MS Office files into Open Office and save files in Open Office as MS Office files. You might lose a little formatting, but the two sets of files are over 90% equivalent.

    Download OOo here:

    You may want to checkout iWorks '08 which has a word processing program, spreadsheet program and a slideshow program. I am choosing not to give microsoft anymore of my money.
