Pros Slick GUI; runs great under Jaguar; Intel native
Cons Excel loses some functionality; lacks PC version's "ribbon menus"; Expression Media not worth the increased cost
Summary I received this edition of MS Office 2008 as a free upgrade from 2004's version. Had I been purchasing it myself, I would have opted for the cheaper Student/Teacher Edition (which also includes multiple user licenses). Expression Media isn't a bad file organizer, but it seems useless considering the enhanced file browsing power of the Jaguar OS. Unless you're concerned about tracking metadata across a variety of filetypes, this application can probably just be ignored.
Overall, GUI enhancements make this a huge step-up from Office 2004. This suite gives you everything you need to take your MacBook to work
