    Hi. I have just received my brand new MacBook Air and I love it. I also bought Office 2011 for Mac, but since I don't have an optical drive I have to download it. The manual tells me to go to microsoft.com/mac/downloads and double click on Office Installer. Now maybe I'm blind, but I simply can't find that bloody installer. Can somebody please tell me where to look?

    You should receive an email with the link to download it, if you've already bought it.

    I bought office in the shop when I picked my computer up.

    according to this faq (the last question), you'll have to use the Remote Disc feature or an external disk drive.

    Why not explain the situation to the people in the shop where you bought Office. With luck, they'll probably lend you an external drive. :)
