Office for Mac Home and Student Edition 2011 (1 Us&hellip by Microsoft Software
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I'm a student and I've been using this version of Office pretty much every day since it came out. I mostly use Word and Excel every so often but I haven't had a chance to really try out Powerpoint. I use Word for note taking during my lectures and really it does exactly as you'd expect. If you've used Office on Windows, it's pretty much the same; you even get the ribbon now. This version (2011) also loads much quicker compared to the old one (2008).
I do have a few niggles that stop me from liking it completely. First, and for me most importantly, there's no Mac version of Onenote. Onenote, if you haven't used it, is an application for making notes but you can drag pictures and links… Read more

Ryan has a "life is better on your own," sort of philosophy which during the course of the film looks like it's going to change, but it doesn't! It's like you've been given… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Does as it should, 22 Jun 2010
Bought this as a Time Machine and extra storage drive to go with my new MBP. Originally I had a WD Studio HDD, but that broke within an hour of use. I replaced it with this LaCie one because, well, I liked the design. It is a beautiful piece of design and has excellent build quality. Just one little thing: it's really heavy! (LaCie's website says it weighs 1.38 kg). The case is solid metal and feels like it could survive just about anything. The front has a touch sensitive section that performs certain actions, but this requires the software to be installed. I didn't both with it, but it doesn't make a different to how the drive works. As someone else here has mentioned, that polished panel… Read more
