    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    How seamlessly can you move word documents, excel spreadsheets, and powerpoint presentations from Office '11 for Mac to the iWork suite on the iPad? Would you lose a lot of the formatting, charts, etc?

    I'm using the free trial of Office and I plan to buy the iPad 2. There are a lot of advanced functions, formats, charts, etc and I'm trying to decide how these would convert if I opened them on an iPad. Maybe quickoffice or docstogo works more seamlessly with Office '11?

    There will always be unexpected formating issues coming from word to Pages or Excel to Numbers for example.

    If you want consistency you would be best to stick with iWork.

    Although I'm using QuickOffice on the iPad and it's really good.
