well, no high sounding stuff, just very simple statistical ones, e.g. statistical significance, p values etc.

JMP has a trial version, but it's limited by time (30 days) instead of number of launches. If you're a student, you might be able to get it pretty cheap or free through your school.

Also the site is a little daunting, but check out http://macstats.org for more options ranging from free to absurdly expensive.

GraphPad Prism is a handy tool for basic stats stuff, I'm using it for my PhD research.

If you are a student, SPSS is good. JMP is good too. Otherwise, they are very expensive.

If you are doing business stats, corporate types seem to like excel/excel add ins for stats - not sure why but they do.

R is a bit complex, but free though I never got the hang of it.
