    Hi everyone ^_^

    This is my first post and I've a couple of questions and did searched for it on the internet but unfortunate ...

    For my study Multimedia designer, I am planning to get a Mac Pro but my school wants us to get a D*ll V laptop, windows 7 with these software:

    Adobe CS4 Master Collection
    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
    Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007

    I didn't choose for this D*LL laptop because its a 17,3" one and with my schoolbooks and etc in my bag, it would be pretty heavy for me.I hope that someone in this forum knows the answers on my questions and I really appreciate your help cos I even asked my friends and family about it but unfortunate, no luck so far :)

    Question 1: I've a copy of Windows XP and a update of Windows 7, can I install it on myMac Pro?

    Question 2: Is there any difference between MS Office for Mac 2008 and Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007?

    -I know that MS Office Enterprise 2007 have:
    Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access, InfoPath, OneNote and Groove.

    Question 3: When I have installed Windows 7, can I install MS Office Enterprise 2007 and MS Office Project Professional 2007 on my Mac pro ?

    I am not sure if someone can answers my questions but any advise is very welcome!!! Thank you in advance!:)

    1. do you mean win7 upgrade?
    2. 2008 on the mac isn't as good as 07 on the pc, it's underwhelming when going from 2007 pc to 2008 mac, but I mean, 2008 works if that's what you're asking
    3. yes, bootcamp or use a virtualization program like parallels and you can install/run those two programs

    3. My apologies, I haven't got my *Mac Pro yet but you mean, if I managed to install the windows 7 on the Mac Pro, I can install Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 and Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007, right?
    -forgive me, my english isn't so good, I'm from Holland ^_^

    *I wanted to check first if its possible and then get the Mac Pro later otherwise I'll end up with 2 laptops ^_^

    Edited: Thank you so much for your help!!!

    Yes, once you install windows 7 onto your macbook pro, you can easily install the programs that you need (MS Office Enterprise 2007 and MS Office Project Professional 2007).
