I have the imac Pro 17" (along the diagonal) aluminum notebook. PLEASE tell me how I can get to the wordprocessing software that's on my hard drive? If there's more than one, I'd prefer one most like Word for Windows or otherwise user-friendly.
Thank You!!!

• Your Mac OS X system, comes with a built in
text editor application, called "Text Edit".

This application will allow you to create, print and
email documents in a format that is readable in
Microsoft Word in both Macs and PCs.

To locate Text Edit, simply go to your Applications
folder and click in The Text Edit application icon to open

Now if you have not purchased a copy of Microsoft Office
for Mac version 2008 or 2004, you will not have it installed
in your Mac. I do know that if there is a copy of the trial verdin
of Microsoft already installed you can use it, but for only 30 days.
For more information about MS Office for Mac please feel free
to go to htttp://

Finally, I would like to also recommend you review the free
OpenOffice office suite which works with Macs for word processing
spreadsheet and can also create documents readble in the same
Microsoft Word in the same format. What's more, is that it is free.
For more information on that Office suite go to

If you have any further questions please don' hesitate to reply back to this post.
I am always glad to assist as much as I can.

Thank you!
