Microsoft doesn't make Publisher for the Mac.

I think the older aluminum ones did dent easily. The new ones appear to be made from much thicker metal. Though they do scratch easily.

The old plastic ones crack and generally feel very lose in comparison.

Here's an interesting video of how the new ones are made, which is very different than any other computer on the market.

Yes, they all do. iMovie comes in Apple's iLife '08 software, which comes with all new computers.

My experience with Macs have been unfortunate. All they would do is freeze up on me.

Had to edit my movie on one. Whenever something went wrong, it was blamed on the Mac. Even when the door handle got jammed and we were stuck in that tiny "editing room" (more of a brrom closet) for an hour, the Mac was to blame. ;)

Yeah, I know Publisher isn't available. I thought it would come with the edition of Office, but sadly not. But what I mean is that something I use, Adobe Pagemaker, is equivalent.

I'm more inclined to believe you meant what you said the first time. Why is it that your stories always change?
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

...and still no explanation...

Can you at least explain why your IP address is located in the UK if you're from New York?

They stopped selling PageMaker for the Mac in 2004. it doesn't even work on current Macs like the MacBook Air or the new Macbook, which you claim to have. It really sounds to me like you are a liar.

For ***** sake, this just gets better and better. Michael, as for that I do live in New York and I am never going to deny it. I have always lived there since the day I was born. To be honest, I can't help but laugh at you all.

Well then you should have some sort of explanation as to your IP address being in the UK??
