    Hello,

    Just got my MBA 11.6 with 4 gb ram. This is my first mac. For some reason, Microsoft word is unbearably slow on this machine, especially when I tried to process pictures. Does anybody else have the same problem? Is there a fix? Thanks.

    Which version of Microsoft Word do you have? (2008? 2011?) Have you installed the latest service releases?

    Thanks for the response and I have just found the solution to my problem.

    The problem was, when I copied and pasted a picture, the software did not automatically resize the picture. So I ended up with a word file with 45 mb with only 2 pictures in it. The software ran ok when I shrink the pictures prior to pasting them to my document.
