DOES IT WORK? YES!,
This review is from: Office Mac 2004 Student and Teacher Edition (CD-ROM)For me, the key question in buying a Mac to accompany my several PCs was "will I be able to swap files?" In particular, I use Word and Outlook constantly, and it was vital I could exchange files between the two systems.
Good news: Using Office Mac, everything works perfectly. The Mac version has a few bits and pieces which work better than the PC version, eg in Word there's a neat, transparent formatting palette which appears alongside your document. "Entourage", the Mac version of Outlook, works much the same way but looks and feels better than the "normal" PC version. On the whole, though, everything feels familiar; and files created in either system work on both. I thought it was pretty good value, too - you get 3 installs, so one set will service up to three MacBooks.
Conclusion: valuable, decently-priced software if you want to swap Office files between Macs and PCs.
