Will Office for Mac 2011 work on my Macbook Pro v 10.6.8?

I have a very old version of Word and would like to upgrade to the Office for Mac 2011. I have a MacBook Pro OS X v10.6.8 and am wondering if it can handle the new Office.

  • Absolutely. Office 2011 will run fine on OS10.5.8 through to the current OS10.10.

    When installed, I suggest doing updates so Office is "tuned" for whichever OS is being used.
    With an Office app open, go to the Help menu --> Check for Updates.
