I have to agree. I got iWork, hoping it would take the place of office and then had to get Office almost immediately after, and this was on a 24 inch iMac extreme.
Formulas in Numbers is like pulling your hair out, and simple cell formating and borders such as the "bottom line" (accountants will know what this is) are impossible from what I have noticed.
When attempting to do line spacing in Pages, I was again pulling my hair out. It was like Page Maker all over again, which I used to swear by, until I finally went full on into Word and never looked back.
I even tried open office and got it off my computer as soon as I could. I would have been more productive committing sepuku.
Don't get me wrong. I plan to get an iPad, when the second model comes out. I have always hated laptops because I have just never seen the point. A sit down computer you carry with you. Unless you absolutely
need it for business and are traveling all the time, the laptop has never made sense to me, especially if you already had a computer, preferably with a NAS, set up at home.
the iPad makes sense and I do plan to get one, maybe two if my wife wants one also, but they need to fix their office replacement app to provide more than just gimmickry.
