    Is it possible to "only" install Excel and Word from this suite if I buy, or is installation the complete package?
    As this is my own MacBook and used at home and I have a PC at work, I don't need/want Outlook (Mac Office 2011 when it comes), or PowerPoint.

    I did take a look at both apps via 30-day trials when first got my MBP, but couldn't make my mind up - iWork was significantly different (and possibly feature-poor) to put me off the switch, but Mac Office '08 was a poor comparison to Office XP & '07 I'm used to at work.

    thanks.

    There was an option to do a Custom Install when I installed it on my Mac. You could specify which apps you wanted!

    On the previous versions you could do customised installs of only one app from the suite.

    Yeah, just do a custom install and select what you want.
