I used to work from my HP windows laptop and now I have just bought the MAC.  I want to open and continue working on my excel spreadsheets and word files.  Can I use numbers and pages or do I have to go and buy the Microsoft package again?!!

    If you plan on sharing documents with other users and those other users are using Office, you would be better off to buy Office for the Mac or use one of the free open source clones of Office.  While Numbers & Pages will import and export Excel and Word documents, it is not a perfect process and it can create a mess if you go back and forth from iWork to Office.
