Any advice for my MacBook Word / Excel / Powerpoint woes?

Office runs like a dog on my 512Mb 1.83GHz MacBook. It slows up, crashes sporadically, and is generally a pain to work with. I have been experimenting with NeoOffice, and am finding it equally slow to run, and inadequate in terms of features.
I'm sick of switching back and forward between two clunky bits of software. Can anyone recommend Nisus / Mellel / Pages / Keynote, and is there anything out there that offers half decent charts and graphs?
Alternatively, would a RAM upgrade make any difference? I upgraded the RAM on my iBook G4 to try and coax better performance out of Office, and it made no difference whatsoever.
