A note about AppleWorks (or ClarisWorks)

All of the applications I've mentioned so far (word processor, database, spreadsheet, paint, and draw) are rolled into the application called AppleWorks on your iMac. However, you can buy an application that is nothing but a very powerful word processor, and you can buy a single application that is nothing but a database, or a spreadsheet, or a paint program. Each individual application, of course, is much more powerful than the one in AppleWorks, but even though the ones you have on your iMac are not quite as powerful as the "dedicated" programs (dedicated to one function), AppleWorks will take you a very long way. When you get to a point where you want more than the applications in AppleWorks can give you, invest in the next level up. You will be able to take all of your data from AppleWorks and put it in the new application. For now, I think you'll probably be happy for quite a while with what you have.

Tip

When you're ready, go to the Apple web site for lots of tips, techniques, templates, tutorials, free stuff, and other resources for AppleWorks. It's a wonderful gift.
