    I recently got a Mac and I'm now looking to put software on it... It didn't come with any document creation software! Knowing what teachers use computers for (newsletters, worksheets, etc), what kinds of software would you recommend (iWork vs. Office for Mac? Would you get Print Shop?)???

    THANKS!

    I am a long-time mac user (15 years now!). I LOVE iWork and iLife. I also use PrintShop 2 for a variety of things. I had office for mac on my machine last year when I was a team leader (had to open Excel documents), and I HATED word. I think it is a "what you know is what you like" kind of thing.

    You DO get your educator discount on software. Did you know?

    You could get Open Office - it'll open and save most MS Office documents, and it has the considerable virtue of being free.
