Re: [teacherartexchange] Computer Question

My wife is working on her master program and she likes
working on Macs the only problem was that most of the
programs she used at the college level were only for a
PC. So we bought a new MAC laptop that can use both
formats. It has worked great. We have XP and
Microsoft Word Suite on her PC side and the popular
MAC software on the other side. We have had it for
over a year and have had no problems.

You should be able to use your district Lic for
software if they have enough computers listed on it
including yours.
