Question of Microsoft Office Product Keys

#1jaredt13Posted 8/17/2013 6:14:25 AM
If all goes well today, I'll be getting an 11" macbook air. I do not want to buy a new copy of Microsoft Office unless I actually have to. I own a Windows version of the 2010 software. Will this product key work for a mac software installation? My gut instinct says no, but I'm really hoping that it will.

No, it will not work.

Unless you also run windows through boot camp, no. In order to run office you'd need to buy the 'Office for Mac' version. But it's not cheap and I hear it runs like crap.

The macbook should come with a version of iWork though, which is essentially the same thing and even if it doesn't it's muchh cheaper software to buy.
