So, y’all remember when I said that I got my new MacBook Pro, that my other computer was retiring?
Well. It’s still my main computer… It’s a pain in the behind though – because it still has the same issues it was having previously –
Well a few reasons – One of them being that I am slower at getting around on the MacBook, due to inexperience and lack of time to ‘dillydally’ around on it.
When I’m at the computer to blog– I mean business… I don’t have time to fool around – I mean.. I’ve got two toddlers running circles around me most of the time that I am writing!
Secondly: I’m not totally comfortable that my images are always harder to find (mostly due to my experiences with windows so far..)
Thirdly: I don’t have all the right software on it just yet…
Microsoft Office is changing that though – They were generous enough to provide me with a product key for Office: Mac 2011 Home & Business.
Now I can create new documents as well as download the documents that some PR companies send me; I can edit and forward my resume to potential dental hygiene jobs; and I can download the really cute Power Point videos that my mom sends me via email, that I otherwise am forced to wait to watch on my PC.
It’s so nice knowing that what I am used to in my desktop will be set up exactly the same (only better, on my Mac!) so that I won’t have to get used to any new commands, formats, or interfaces!
I’ll be able to share the documents between my Mac and my PC so much easier as well – which means much more time savings!
Office for Mac 2011 has some really great features as well: One of the most used features that I work with are the Templates. They’ve got hundreds or even thousands of templates that help me get whatever I might need – done.
I’m excited to get the full use out of my new friend Word and Excel on the Mac and looking forward to the full-transition over to the Mac… eventually
If you’d like to learn more about Microsoft Office: you can check them out on Facebook – or learn more about them on their websites for PC or for Mac, where you can also download free trials for each program.
