Hello everyone!
I recently got a MacBook Air and I would like to install Microsoft office.
I also have a MacBook Pro that I got years ago and I have microsfot office 2011 CD with a product key and I installed it on my Pro years ago.
How can I install the same program to the Air?
Can I use the remote disc feature and link the Pro to Air, insert the Cd and install it ?
Or can I download the Microsoft office directly to the Air from the website and just enter the product key that I have already?
Any other ideas?
Thank you for the input

^^^^If you have a license left, sure. My copy of MS Office 2011 is good for two macs. It's installed on my cMP and my MBA. Authenticating a second installation used to be a big deal with MS, not so much anymore. BTW, the latest update is 14.7.4

I just entered my product key and it's said I have one install left, so I think I should be good!! Yay.
Thank you all so much again for your help!:)
