Re: Word Processor Suggestions Help Please.

Jarte is a great word processor that is not as powerful as Word but is certainly more robust than Wordpad. There have been some changes with the Jarte landscape, however. First, Jarte is no longer being developed. Along those lines the Jarte Plus program, which used to cost $20.00, is now free. Therefore, if anybody is interested in using Jarte I would advise downloading Jarte Plus from www.jarte.com while it's still available, considering that we don't know how long the Web site will continue to remain operational.

Do you just want to do rather simple work or do you want more complex abilities? I suspect that in general, word processors manufacturers put on Windows machines are free, and maybe open source. Microsoft used to have a starter version of Word for Windows 7 that manufacturers could put on but they haven't had anything of the sort for a long time.

If you tell us what you want to do, you might get better tailored suggestions There are many free word processors to choose from and I wouldn't buy a computer based on what may be included if you can get a better laptop at a cheaper price without one or with a different one than people like. JARTE is a good one. Open Office and Libre Office may be good ones. Others will have to comment on that. You can install all of them yourself. Even if you aren't comfortable installing programs, you may be able to get enough help from the list to allow you to do so.

Hi Everyone,
I am wanting to buy a Windows Laptop, but I don't know what to look for in a good Word Processor though, as I've noticed some Laptops have different processors in them, so I'm not for sure what to look for.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Janet
Peace Be With You.
