    hi, i have mbp13 2.4ghz 4gb ram (mid-2010), open office runs very slowly when i'm using few apps at the same time (few ff tabs and such),

    what is the best solution for me? which office suite is the fastest and the lightest?

    I have the same setup as you, except a 15” MBP w/4GB. I find OpenOffice and NeoOffice acceptable in terms of speed.

    If you do not use the database, then consider Symphony 3, basically OpenOffice from IBM. It seems snappier, more compact, and does a decent job of offering word/spreadsheet/presentation work. Be sure to get the Symphony 3 version, not 1.3 version.
