    I need to transfer my Microsoft Office Word documents (2003) from my PC to my MBP (2010, Snow Leopard). I have word documents and pictures. I need to transfer my word docs keeping the format, columns, images, font, etc to my MBP.
    I also need to create documents on both computers and transfer them freely.

    The 'geniuse' in Mac shop suggested I buy Pages, but the reviews are not too good.

    The other Mac Office package I can buy is expensive but especially has things I do not need.

    Any suggestions or advice is welcome.

    I have the MS Office suit for my Mac (converted over last year). I transferred my existing PC files using migration assistant, and have transferred files back the other way since (via email or flash drive mostly for work). All work seamlessly. Can't comment on pages as I have never used it, but although not cheap the MS Office suit is the industry standard. You could also have a look at some of the free open source versions if money is tight like open office.
