    Why would you think that? I've used office on my rMBP and it looks fine, I've been using pages/numbers/keynote on my RiMac though.

    I don't think you can compare the rMBP screen to the 5k iMac.

    However I could be wrong.

    Are you running Office 2011 and is it fully up-to-date? The DVD version currently being distributed doesn't have native retina support, but if you go to Help>Check for updates within the application there are a number of updates which will make it compatible with retina displays.

    If you're using Office 2008 then I don't think there's an update to fix retina displays.

    Office 2011 is Retina enabled, however some interface elements look blurry. Overall Office 2011 is pretty usable on my Retina iMac.

    How does Office 2010 and 2013 for Windows (via WineBottler or Parallels) look?

    No problem buddy, hope it helps.

    Just to let you know that sometimes when you do 'Check for Updates' it shows as no updates available. However if you Cmd+Q, then reopen and check for updates again, there'll be one that shows up. That's Microsoft for you, I guess. :D

    Keep us posted.

    Outlook 2015 looks better now in my opinion on the retina imac.

    Not surprising. The office 2011 Retina update was a minimum effort affair. They got everything that truly mattered but didn't go beyond that.

    I mostly use Outlook 2015. It looks fantastic!

    The rest seems fine. I have opened Word, etc and did not notice anything way off.
