I recently bought and use Mac Office and also use Microsoft Home & Student for Vista. I can tell you that Mac Office has run perfect on my Macbook Pro without any problems. I am happy with both products because when I transfer a document from Mac Office to Vista, I can update it with Vista and vice-versa without losing any content or colors. Mac Office has all the same abilities as does Home and Student. I couldn't be more satisfied.

-William M. quote

I haven't used this product extensively, but my first impression of Excel was a disappointment. This was an upgrade from Office 2004 for Mac and is used on an iMac with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB RAM and OS 10.5.1. Microsoft decided to remove the Visual Basic macro feature from Excel and replace it with Apple Script, which makes this version totally incompatible with its Widows counterpart in this regard. Also Word and Excel are painfully slow when launching and seems sluggish under normal use compared to the 2004 version. One improvement that's nice is the formula wizard in Excel. My advise: If you're currently using Office 2004 or X and you're proficient with Excel, use macros, share with Window users and isn't one that needs the newest bloatware, I wouldn't bother upgrading.
