I have a macbook that was purchase in 2006 and wanted to know was pages, keynote and numbers already installed on the computer prior to purchase. If so where would it be located. If not. I already purchased and downloaded it but it will not open on the macbook, it's showing that it's only an app for iPad/iPhone.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    The iWork suite (Pages / Numbers / Keynote) is not part of your computers OS, and would be a seperate installation. 


    If you do have it, it would be in your applications folder, in a second folder entitled "iWork"


    As your computer has an old OS (10.5.8), you would not be able to download these app's, as they require an OS version of 10.7 or higher.


    Your OS will support iWork 08 or iWork 09, and if you have an iWork installation disc, you can install it on this computer.  If you don't have an iWork installation disc you can likely purchase one off of ebay.

    It sounds like you have only purchased Pages for iOS which is a completely separate purchase to the Pages from the Mac App Store (the App Store on your dock).
