    Hello

    I'm about to buy a Macbook Pro in the coming weeks, but there is one thing that concerns me.

    I have a Microsoft Technet subscription which allows me to get keys for MS Office, however the Mac version is not listed on Technet. Does anyone know if I could use the retail MS Office keys for PC on the Mac version of Office?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm 99% sure that they Windows keys don't work on the Mac version.

    Can't use the keys, or no one knows? ;)

    I love that kind of question. My answer would always be "no" or "yes" - whichever is appropriate. That forces the person to frame the question in such a way as to get the solution to the problem instead of just whether or not anyone knows the answer.

    Oops, good catch. In this case, no you cannot use PC Office keys on Mac Office.
