    If you mean MS Office for Mac, then MS Office 2008, as it still supports the PPC architecture. MS Office 2011 requires an Intel CPU.

    If you mean iWork, then the current version ('09) will do too.

    What I think is that iWork is a much, much better buy than MS Office, and it's almost completely compatible with any office document.

    Most avid users of Keynote will tell you that it is superior to Powerpoint, too.

    If you are addicted to Outlook, you might not like doing without it.

    In my personal opinion (which might differ from yours), one does perfectly well with the native iCal and iMail OSX applications, especially if you have a MobileMe account with which to coordinate all your information.

    One might even say that Outlook seems a little klunky after using the OSX applications. :)

    But some people just cannot do without it, and we all understand that.

    I have run into many documents that are not what i would call compatible. yes they open, but things are out of place or just missing, and unless you open'd the doc in MS office you wouldn't know that things are missing or moved, so if there is any importance to the document, you need to use ms office. Iwork just is not there yet.

    I found this too. While at University my lecture handouts lost all formatting when opened in Pages. I put up with it as the text is still there.

    Agreed. I found myself wanting to use it but could not because of missing items on documents.

    Still great if the documents produced/opened are formatted properly.
