    I'm ordering an iBook. I already have Office X installed on two machines, desktop and mobile device, which is the maximum the licencing agreement allows. Since Office X checks your local area network for other installed copies using the same CD-key, I could not be connected and use Office at the same time. It might also be a problem if I was surfing the internet and someone else on the network tried to launch Office. There are two solutions to this problem: pay $500 for another version of Office (NO WAY!!), or use Apple Works 6, which comes free with the iBook. Has anyone used Apple Works 6? How would it be as an Office replacement? I don't get a Slide Show app like Power Point, but I think I can live with that. Need some advice.

    appleworks 6 has no translators. it's appleworks or nothing. dunno why they did that. appleworks 5 had all the translators.

    and technically you can only install office on one machine unless you specifically purchased a multilicense copy.

    Or just copy the translators from Appleworks 5. They will still work with 6.

    That's not true. It says one desktop AND one portable device. I own the full version and read the agreement.

    If anyone questions your using your copy on more than one computer, when they start rambling break the cd(s) in half and STAB THEM IN THE FACE!!! No more problems.

    sure...

    i really need to figure out how to check for forum registration for files directory access though. if i leave it completely open like it is now people may start linking to files directly and leech bandwidth.

    Apple store for education - $199.00, better than $500.00 anyway.

    Do you need Office X on two portables? What is the other one?
