Why should I get this when iWork is so much better... and less than half the price?!

    Both have advantages. Office products have features that iWork does not. iWork has its advantages also but some of them - like some transitions in Keynote - do not translate 100% back into Office docs. It's a question of taste and needs.

  • Ive had Iwork for 2 years and I hate it. You have to export everything which means you have to make 2 files of the same document. Too much space taken up and it gets annoying to organize. Not my preferance. I'd rather the real thing.

  • If you find iWork does the job, then stick with it, I have and love it. There is nothing "real thing" about Office.
