Microsoft Office Home And Student 2008 For Mac Retail Box

Buy Microsoft Office Home and Student 2008 for Mac from SaveOnIT

Many Mac users rely on Microsoft's powerful productivity suite for word processing, making spreadsheets, and analyzing data. With Microsoft Office Home and Student 2008 for Macs, Microsoft brings all the great updates from Microsoft Office 2007 to the Mac.

Apple users will enjoy the flexibility and ease of usage on their Macintosh machines with improved user interface design, a feature Microsoft focused on as well in their Windows counterparts. Mac users with newer laptops will find that Office 2008 for Mac has been optimized for their new Intel-powered machines. The new XML file formats come to Mac as well, decreasing the amount of space files take up.

What’s New?


The new interface performs smoother than previous editions did on Apple products. You can navigate around the interface to find functions with ease, all without feeling cluttered.

XML File Types

A major change users will notice is the “x” at the end of filenames. For example,.doc files change to .docx and your .xls files change to a .xlsx file extension. The X indicates that the file is now an XML file. This cuts the storage space required for files and improves security.

Files now take up half the hard drive space to store your files than they used to. If you’re creating a slideshow in Powerpoint and previously it took up 60MB, you may be looking at a 30MB file now, making it easier to share and keep backups on your machine.

Updates to security lock down a previous backdoor exploit that used Macros to infect macro-enabled Office files. Now this loophole has been closed, lowering the chance of your device being infected with malware.

This file type switch has come with a smooth transition, such as allowing .doc files to be read and converted to .docx files with no hassle (and likewise with other applications). Users with previous Office editions can still view the XML based documents with their older programs. This file type change is a major upgrade, as XML files are expandable, allowing more processing and computing power for later editions, allowing you to do more with these applications, and store more data.

Elements Gallery

The Elements Gallery is a set of tabs below the menu toolbars that show themes and templates for charts, SmartArt graphics, and WordArt. Each theme also has more options available within each tab, allowing for greater creativity.

Object Palette

The Object Palette gives users stylistic options such as formatting, charts, clip art, and artistic shapes. You can also import photos from the Palette, allowing more fluidity and intuitive options to inspire a little more pop to your documents.

Word Updates

Word gets a handful of helpful templates that you can edit and customized to your heart’s content. Quick Tables takes selected lists and text, then quickly converts them into a graph. You also get a preset list of options to choose from, which of course can be tweaked further.

Excel Updates

Excel, much like the other programs, gets a library of presets that are handy for home and student users. Ledger Sheets populate common financial templates, such as a budget, invoice, or account balancing. Chart creating has been made a little easier, with formatting changes available right at your fingertips.

Powerpoint Updates

Powerpoint gets an enhanced interface, with a new side panel that appears with a preview of your slides that update automatically. You can rearrange slide order by clicking and dragging slides around in this new area. SmartArt really shines through in Powerpoint, allowing users to efficiently link thoughts and ideas visually. Examples include flowcharts with arrows, or satellites that revolve around a central idea, with lines linking relationships together. These options make those boring presentations stand out, keeping your audience more engaged.

What Does This Edition Include?

This Home and Student package of Microsoft Office for Mac 2008 includes the essentials. You will get all of the standard Microsoft Office applications: Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. With this trio of powerful programs, you can rest assured you will finish whatever project you come across.
