    Ok..i need to install Word and all that so i am going to get the student and teacher edition. Do you guys think i should get the mac version or windows version and just use Fusion+vista to run it?

    I will be using it alot for college.

    Office Mac...... save yourselves the extra Win and VM cost just for Office especially when Mac Office is better than its Win counterpart!

    I really like the Office suite on Mac, though I did have a little dificulty to get used to it in the begining. some things are a lot different to people like me that has a long path on the windows version, but at the end Im enjoying the Mac version much more than the one on windows.

    But also Im thinking to give a shot on the iWork suite, specially the keynote app, that I've heard a lot about. I always liked the Apple aproach on software, and you can see it comparing, for example, Entourage x Mail. even using more Entourage, since I need Exchange, I like more the Mail app that came with Leopard. Microsoft apps tend to be too much bulky, and Apple are the simpliest yet very powerfull :)

    Get the Mac version. In my experience it runs a tad slower than it does on Windows at times, but that's definitely not enough to warrant installing a whole new OS on your computer just because of that.
