Apple Numbers Spreadsheet

Apple Inc. has fired off another salvo aimed at converting Windows PC users to the Mac with a new spreadsheet application called Numbers that works exactly like Microsoft’s Excel, but looks a little better.

“A lot of Windows customers are going to switch because of this stuff,” says Apple CEO Steve Jobs in his presentation today launching the new flagship iMacs and the iWork ’08 software suite.

The new Pages ’08 word processor might also make you ditch MS Word altogether, if only for its good looks, not to mention Keynote ’08 which boasts cinema-quality presentations and could replace Powerpoint.

Apple iMac Computers

The new iMacs have slimmed down a bit, now thinner than their older siblings, and come with a glass screen and a brushed-aluminum casing that replaces the mostly plastic body of the earlier models.

The new iMacs are available in 20- and 24-inch models, no more 17-inchers. They range in price from $1199 to $1799.
