I bought this item for my new Macbook that I will be using for graduate school. I've always worked on the Microsoft Office Suite for Windows, but now that I have a Mac, I needed to switch over. I really appreciated that I could work with the same programs as with Windows, since I was already trying to adapt to an entirely new OS. It's a little bit different as far as format and layout, so it took a little adjusting, but overall, it works just as well as the Windows version and it does everything I want it to, from Excel to Word to OneNote. I haven't had to use PowerPoint yet, but I'm sure that one is just as good as well. All of the functionalities are available that are necessary for taking extensive notes, compiling and presenting data, and for creating a wide variety of word documents for school. There is nothing earth shattering about it, but it does what I want and need it to do and that's all I wanted out of it.
