Hi Guys

I only have Works on my laptop, havetried Open Office, Jarte but I think I prefer Word.

Any advice please, dont suppose I can get it free?

This is free and every bit as good as Word, click here

Abi word is free and good for just a Word Processor.

But - a question - what's the reason you need Word when you have Works?

And - I've switched to Open Office v3 from MS Office, and find it every bit as good - and FREE!!!!

I've got Works, Word and OpenOffice and if anything I find that OpenOffice opens much quicker than either of the other two. Have you got OpenOffice version 3?

Guy asks where he can buy Word and gets bombarded with ideas for other applications, most of which he's already rejected!

I agree with frenchman99, the only wp I really get on with is Word, in fact I dumped a free copy of Works and bought Word.

The only suggestion I can give for the original question is ebay.

You have written exactly what I have been thinking!

I also have tried Open Office, Works, Word Perfect and Word and as far as I am concerned Word is far, far better than the others.

I actually use Office Professional and got the academic one which saves a lot of money!
