does anybody have any experience running ms office on the latest mac operating system? i think it is leopard but since i have never had any experience with a mac i am not sure. some people have told me that there is a compatibility program that you can purchase that will run ms office on macs. so, does ms office still run and act exactly as it does on windows and are there any problems?

i think that you just get the mac version of ms office

edit: yes it is what you get: http://www.amazon.com/Microsof.....#38;sr=8-1

you don't have to get it there you can go lots of places to get it like best buy and such but it's probs cheaper off amazon or some other site though.

cheers :)

Well, I must say no to that one, but you can give Open Office a try for free, and it can read MS Office programs. Can't hurt to try and will save you several hundred (if it meets your requirements that is).

The Mac version of Office (latest) is fairly similar to the Windows version, in terms of features etc. It doesn't have the same "visual" layout as the Windows version, w/ that orb or whatever it's called. Honestly, I'd go w/ OpenOffice.
