Macworld Buying Advice
For £55, it’s hard to fault iWork ’08. Keynote thrashed PowerPoint back in 2003, and it just keeps getting better, Pages isn’t a Word-killer, but it’s a good low- to mid-range word processing alternative. Numbers, however, may well redefine how people use spreadsheets. It’s powerful, beautiful, and surprisingly versatile.
