Should you order the disk or download?
By J. Torres
There has been enough written about using Microsoft’s office apps versus Apple’s on the iMac. I’ll not rehash that here. I need every feature I can get my hands on so I checked Amazon today for the best price on Office 2011 for the Mac. Given that I only have one Mac in the house I was happy to see I could save a few bucks on the 1 license/1 mac version.
Then I saw the download version available and wondered if I should do that or wait the two days for the disks. The item description said it could take from 1 hour and 30 minutes to 5 hours to download. One of the reviewers said the download didn’t work. I thought I’d take the risk anyway given I have all the latest hardware and software, fast cable internet connection, a little bit of tech knowledge, trust Amazon to take care of its customers, and am increasingly enjoying the new world of online availability of everything without having to store disks.
So here’s my take: It took me 8 minutes to download the software and 4 minutes to install it. Then I had to get back on Amazon for the software key, as you need to quit Safari to finish the install. Upon starting the software it checked for updates and I needed to install service pack 1 which took another couple of minutes. All in all the process was completely error free and under 20 minutes. It doesn’t get any better than this! Highly recommend!
The only reason I might reconsider the digital download is if I was unsure about my internet or hardware/software setup. But if that was the case, then I wouldn’t be looking at Office 2011 anyway, as it might not work well on my setup anyway. The thing people need to remember is that upgrading necessitates upgrading — the best way to keep your old hardware is to keep your old software, but when you want the latest and greatest, be prepared for the costs for all the latest to go with it.

It may have had some bugs before (which is probably why it has some low reviews) but the current version works smoothly with OS X Lion. I had no problems installing it or putting in the product code. Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint all work just like they do on windows and docs/presentations/spreadsheets can be transfered to windows computers. So far I’ve had no problems with any of the 3 and am very pleased with my purchase. A must have for all Mac users.
Do note that it comes with Word, Powerpoint and Excel. If you want Outlook you need another version that includes it or you can but this version and buy Outlook later. This version will give you the Outlook icon when you install the other 3 and if you click on it you have the option to buy Outlook.

Stay with Office 2008
By Polar Bear ME
Office 2011 makes Office 2008 look good. The installation went OK, but then the problems began with many annoyances that prevented me from being productive. For example, in Word, it would not see embedded graphics created with earlier versions of Word, unless the graphics were saved in the earlier document with wrapping other than “in line with text”. Another example is that many formatting commands that are easily accessible in the toolbar and formatting palette of earlier versions of MS Office are not so in the ribbon of Office 2011. In addition, the toolbar in Word 2011 for no apparent reason grays out and is unusable forcing you to use the ribbon. If you want to use canned Microsoft templates, the ribbon is fine, but it is inflexible and hogs space on a small laptop screen. I finally threw up my hands, removed Office 2011 completely, held my nose and reinstalled Office 2008. When I really need to be productive, I still use Office 2004, which is better by far than the subsequent versions. Don’t waste your money on the current version of Office and more importantly, don’t waste your time.
