Is there any equivalent software for OriginLab in mac? OriginLab is used for graphing the data, and manipulating and is not available for mac. Matlab does not allow good control over changing the look of graph for Journal publications and its expensive whereas OriginLab for students is only $50.

If somebody can suggest any such application I will appreciate that.

Thanks.

Take a look at GraphPad Prism. Another possibility is ChartSmith.

[edit] Sorry, we were getting GraphPad Prism at no cost. Didn't realize it was so expensive. Chartsmith is pretty good for US$65 (student).

Also look at DeltaGraph and KaleidaGraph. Both are under $200 academic, but check with your school.

Hey Guys .... thanks a lot. I will look into this. Although DeltaGraph and KaleidaGraph looks impressive but they appear to be costly $199 and $150. OmniGraphSketcher is cheaper and looks to be "cool" but I am doubtful about its capabilities. I guess I need to try all the trial versions and decide myself.

Once a gain thanks a lot.

You might want to think about using OriginLab from a virtual machine running Windows XP or Vista. VirtualBox from Sun systems is free and although not as frilly or fancy as Fusion or Parallels, should suffice for your use.

VirtualBox Downloads.

Regards.

VirtualBox is free, but you still have to buy Windows.

Good point, but from his original post, I'm assuming he already has a copy of Windows. However, unless it's an original MS boxed full copy he couldn't transfer it and would have to buy a new license.
