I never had problem with Pages until the later App Store versions. I ended up grabbing a boxed version iWork 09 off Amazon just in case I would ever need it. It would run, no problem and frankly I don't see any difference from the current version and the 09 version.
I found a copy of Iwork 08 for $9 on amazon. Should be sufficient for what the laptop will be used for.....--
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
