It's that time again... Office:Mac has a new release under its belt for the upcoming 2 years with 2011, a much needed update to Microsoft's productivity software suite.

If you're here, then you may already own Office:Mac 2008 and I'm sure thoughts will be mixed. The software is a package that ultimately had potential, but various attributes let it down such as, the fact that Microsoft tell you to update the programs every month with 'Critical Updates' to fix 'Vulnerability Issues'. When such is the case, why release a product thats updates equate to a larger size than the original installation?

Rest assured however that 2011 is a smoother ride. Whats more, its not even a 64bit package, but I think they can be forgiven on this front since 64bit technology only enhances software thats uses lots and lots of RAM. 2011 is a little lighter on this front. Upon working on each application for half and hour, the average memory sum was around 90mb, so I'm happy that Microsoft have done at least one thing right.

It doesn't stop there though, because the entire package has seen modernisation. The biggest change of all is the Ribbon interface - something that I completely despise on the Windows port of this software, yet on Office:Mac 2011, i'm seriously impressed. The Ribbon, although looking similar in features, is more accomplished on the Mac version since it labels more of the icons and makes the features more 'obvious'. One of the most idiotic aspects of Office for Windows is that the icons on the Ribbon are all too often completely ambiguous.

Whats more, the 'levels' on the Ribbon are denoted clearer, and they are completely customiseable - unlike on the Windows version, were only the 'block' of features could be swapped around.

Was dubious about loading this onto my new I Mac after reading many reviews but no worries it went like a dream. Word and powerpoint are just great, much improved on the 2007 version. They transfer via usb stick to my pc laptop and work flawlessly. What a gretat combination. Apple & Microsoft working in harmony.

I'm new to Mac and was wary but this is, so far, doing what I had hoped it would - Word same as PC, haven't yet used other programmes but don't perceive any problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reluctant purchaser! 11 May 2011
By Midnight TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Software
I recently changed to using a Mac after using PC's and Word based documents for years. I love my Mac and in fact found the transition to Pages, Numbers etc extremely easy and they were a breeze to use.

However, a number of issues continually occurred when documents were being sent backwards and forwards to colleagues. For instance, essential formatting was being lost.

I very reluctantly had to concede that for some specific work related tasks, Word for Mac was pretty well a necessity as a lot of time was being wasted trying to sort out the problems encountered.

It loaded from disc quite easily - although it took far longer than I anticipated.

It's not my intention to use Powerpoint or Excel as I'm very happy with the Apple software. Word will be used when required for work purposes and it does what is expected of it.

I previously worked with Word 2007 and this is obviously more up to date.

While it does have some useful tricks, I really do feel I have literally been dragged kicking and screaming back to using Microsoft software!
Surely there must be a way of seamlessly integrating documents for use on either system?

Perhaps if I had a bit more patience our IT guys would have worked through the problems and found a fix - but at the end of the day, time is money so it worked out more cost effective just to buy this.

It seems to work well and obviously serves its purpose so would gain five stars for that BUT I've reduced to four stars as I really do feel forced into buying it!

Great value, lovely interface and ease of use. This is well worth the small investment.
Word makes everything uncomplicated and Excel is fun to get to grips with, as the
many variations of formulas are amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Purchase! 7 Nov 2013
By Posy
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I have recently changed over from Windows to Mac (which is brilliant) after 25 years. Apple's Numbers & Pages are ok but I missed MS Office after using it for such a long time. It is extremely easy to install and I am glad I made the decision to spend the money.
I would certainly recommend.

Too bad it looses some of the Windows Shortcuts, but it works fine and the compatibility with other Office is good. I found no problems at all, when compared with Office 2010 for Windows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Office for Mac 2011 2 Sep 2011
Format:Software
The look and feel of this Home & Student version of Office is easy to learn. Incorporating images and graphics into Word is improved and basic photo correction is a welcome addition. Powerpoint is much slicker than before - about time too!
Excel sheets and charts now benefit from colour themes. I use a MacBook Pro 17", Core Duo, 4Gb RAM and have experienced none of the crashing/slow running etc that has been reported by others.
