    Works as Expected

    • Written by from Thornhill

    I needed this software as I do consulting work for organizations that are PC based. It loaded seamlessly and works as expected on my new MacBook Pro. Determining how to perform some functions--such as page number format "page x of y"--is somewhat obscure, but the help menu usually gives me the information I need.

    Solid Software

    • Written by from Appleton

    Being a college student, I use these programs every day and I have had absolutely no issues. I can't speak on this version compared to the 2008 version, but the 2011 set up is very effective and can do a ton of things. I have had no problems with crashes or being slow and I would highly recommend to any old PC user turned Mac user, or as even just an upgrade from iwork.

    Necessary Addition

    • Written by from Leominster

    When I decided not to own a PC anymore and go with an Apple Mac, I was in a minor predicament. What to do with all my Microsoft documents, etc. Well, Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Student 2011 was the answer. It did take a little getting used to, as it was laid out a little differently than what I was used to, but it was easy enough to get used to. No issues to date with this product.

    After skipping the 2008 version, I was overdue. Loving this solid version!

    Word 2004 used to always crash at the end of a spell check for me. I had to remember to end the spell check before it got to the last item in the document. Not so with Word 2011. I have had no problems with any apps in the Office 2011 Suite. Honestly, though, for the amount that I use it, I really should just force myself to use iWork. Pages is a more elegant and simple app for my uses. Office is more than most people need, it just sells out of sheer momentum.

    This is NOT a complete version. It does NOT include Outlook so you are stuck with Apple Mail (no comment). Having used Outlook on my machine at work, and since my version of Entourage is no longer supported, I was looking forward to updating my email program. VERY DISSAPOINTED that I did not get a full version of Works. I suppose for the price difference it is ok, but quite deceptive on Microsoft's part. (But then, what did you expect>) Did not give it 5 stars because of this. Otherwise, works fine.

    Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Student 2011

    • Written by from Winston-Salem

    The software is similar to Office for Windows except it does not support duplex printing on the HP Office jet Pro 8600. This is disappointing since even the e-print functions on the iPhone 5 and the iPad Retina offer duplex printing as an option. Pages also offers the duplex printing option.
