1) Yes, System Preferences->Accounts->Login Options->Automatically Log In As

2) Should be fine, although will depend on how many other things are running at the same time. New version of office in january.

1) Yes. You can set it to automatically log in as a user.

2) It runs just fine. Spreadsheets seem a little "laggy" in Excel, but it is pretty minor. Overall, if you can live with some general "not-as-snappy-as-it-should-be feel, it is fine for daily use. But it is slow to launch, though.
