    Does any one know when I can go into a local store and buy Mac Office 2004? :confused:

    I want to get the student version, is it the Full deal or is it an upgrade. :confused:

    I'm new to Mac and need advice.

    I tried the 30 day download from Apple for Mac Office and it would noy open and I don't know how to, it says some thing about a read only problem then nothing opens, I was going to start using it then when 2004 comes out I would buy it! :confused:

    I think it should come out at the end of this month or next month, anyway the date is close......I think

    It should be the full package of everything without Virutal PC

    The date in my mind is 27th May ... but I can't for the life of me think why.

    Drag the 30 day trial from the mounted dmg into your applications folder (or whichever folder you want). DMGs from the internet are most often read-only as a physical commercial CD is.

    I just got my MacConnection today. It says that Office: Mac 2004 is available this month. Student/Teacher Edition $134.95 Standard Edition upgrade only $219.95 It says that the Office 2004 for Mac Professional Edition is coming soon. Maybe it will be announced at WWDC along with an upgrade for Virtual OC.

    I ordered the Office 2004 upgrade as soon as it was announced. Since then I moved, and so I had to change the shipping address with MacMall. While I was doing this, they volunteered the information that Office 2004 was due to ship on May 17. Let's hope that this is true!

    http://www.macworld.com is pretty good for reviews and what not. But there are many others I am sure others will write in and post about, but this is the only one that comes to mind right now.
