    I bought this product to have the microsoft office suite on my new Mac Bookpro. I was eligible to get the student/university version. I could not install it, even after it was downloaded. I took it back to Best Buy and had to stand around for 50 minutes while the geek squad tried to install it. They said they "always have trouble with the University version" for a variety of reasons, like verifying university standing. I saved $20.00 on this version. I would have paid someone $20.00 to avoid all of the hassle I had to endure to get this thing working, and then the Geek Squad guy said the program might evaporate after 2 years. So I would have to buy an additional regular version. This was definitely not worth the $20.00 I saved.

    The new version of Office

    Office has always been a pretty good suite of applications, and you basically need it to be able to save files in the right format without a headache. I know you can use Google Docs, the Apple Versions of these applications, etc but this is the most compatible simply because it is the standard and everyone else uses it. I still prefer Office 2003 oddly enough. We use Office 2007 at work and it is growing on me and it's very similar to the newest version but the new version seem to be a bit on the bland side as far as the visuals. Every version does essentially the same thing for most novice to experienced users. Some Office fanatics might be able to tell you more detailed pros and cons but if you have anything from 2003 on, I would not recommend the upgrade unless there is some specific feature that you need.

    I am taking an Infosystems course at UVU and I have to have access to Microsoft Office. I only purchased my Mac in January and couldn't justify purchasing a PC. I got the university version of Microsoft Office for Mac and I have been extremely happy with its performance ever since. The only issue I have is that I still have to do some edits on a PC since the Mac version doesn't have some of the updates of 2010. Also I wish Apple could find a way to make Microsoft Access work...

    Office for Mac

    It does what it needs to do. If you bought office you have a purpose for it. Plain and simple: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, & Outlook. Just packaged as a student bundle. Its the same price directly from microsoft but I bought it because it came with the disc and didn't require the extra $15 microsoft would of charged for a backup disc.

    I have Office 2010 installed on my other PC's, however Office 2011 is better in all aspects. The fact that with 2011 you have the ability put files into a virtual workspace and have multiple people work on them in real time is awesome. For the price and what you get, as a student it is a steal.

    Wish the Windows Version Was Like This

    Full Office functionallity at a great price for a student or teacher. I wish it had more programs like its academic Windows version does. Plus there are a lot of easy to use features to use that gives its Windows counterpart a run for its money.

    All the money I spend on college is now worth I for the discount on this software. There really is no choice for word processing and spreadsheets, even the mighty Mac software pales in comparison to the offerings from Microsoft.

    Received this as a discount because I was a student and it worked perfectly. Gave me all of the needed functions to use for any college coursework.

    We spent a lot of time trying to figure out the Outlook database problem. Finally we gave up and took it to the Apple store and they solved the problem right away.

    I like this product, but I probably would not have purchased it if it were not on sale.
