A couple of weeks ago, I began a dialogue with a representative from Microsoft Office. We discussed my possibly reviewing their product and hosting a giveaway.
However, I explained to her that (lowered voice to a whisper) I am a Mac girl. Well. She told me that Microsoft offered the same suite of programs DESIGNED FOR THE MAC, called Microsoft Office for Mac 2011.
Almost immediately I received a business e-mail from a client asking that I begin submitting my drafts using Microsoft Word. There is an alternate that Mac users could use, but I need something SIMPLE to understand and easy to use. Perfect timing. I am able to use Word Document for all sorts of assignments, everything from basic text to elaborate docs. (I am very rarely ever elaborate, just so you know. WORDY, yes, but hardly ever elaborate.)
I’m happy to now report that I’m able to use Word also for hoopty ploopty calendars, and my stationary needs. Plus a whole lot of other fun stuff that I look forward to taking for a test spin.
Excel is going to be my new best friend around tax time when I’m color coding our expenses and drafting beautiful spread sheets. And yes, I should have listened to my mother and gone into accounting. The thought of sitting down with a spreadsheet and sharpened #2 pencil makes my pulse quicken. But let’s keep that to ourselves.
And so you don’t feel left out, for all my PC Office 2010 user friends, be sure to take advantage of OneNote and the free, customizable templates they designed to help students succeed, bring a dream vacation to life, and plan a painless home project. And yes, as a Mac user, I’m having OneNote envy.
Microsoft Office is ideal not only for mommies who need to keep their household running on all pistons, but also for your student who is looking to better manage their time and workload. And speaking of which, students are eligible for a discount on Microsoft Office for Mac Academic 2011! This suite, which normally retails for $279.95, also features Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, but students get it for only $99.95.
Guess what? I have a Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 Suite to give away (a value of $279.99)! The suite includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook.
