faarea, coventry

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
does what it says on the tin. has most of the functionality as word (footnotes, fonts etc) but the Word Art isn't great. comes with excel, entourage (email client which you'll never use), word and powerpoint. would recommend it over Mac's own Pages, which is awful. The best thing about this software is that the dictionary expands to ALL programmes. for example, if you type a word wrong on an internet page, u can right-click on it and the Word dictionary corrects it for you. so you don't have to be on Word for the spell-check to work.
Bad points:
bit fiddly, takes a while to get used to the different positions and layout on the Mac.

I can't work out how do histograms on excel, only bar charts, but I haven't had it long enough to know all about everything on it yet.
