Can anyone explain why Apple thinks it's fine* to charge one £800 for a new MacBook that arrives without a proper freakin' word processing programme? This seems to be a new development, since my previous two Apple computers were so equipped. Why, Steve Jobs why?
*I suppose it's because brand loyalty and convenience - ie, knowing how to use Macs but not a PC - means that they can fob one off with this sort of nonsense and trust that we'll still pony up for the latest edition of iLife. So, anyone have recommendations for a good open source word processing programme?
