    I'm still new to the Mac world but I used to install Office on my old, drive-less PC all the time.

    Would I be able to do the same and copy iWork and/or Office 2008 from disc to a USB HD drive (Western Digital)? I have access to a Mac w/drive for awhile but, once my new Air arrives, I won't (so no remote disc option for me). These are the only 2 programs I will ever need to install (from disc) so I'd prefer not to buy the portable super drive.

    It's the same with iWork. Download the trial then enter your serial number. I backup all my physical media onto an external drive to save getting scratched or destroyed. Installs also seem quicker, though that may be BS.

    You can install from a USB or any other medium. The installers for iWork and Office2k8 do not perform a medium check.
