If you do want to use MS Office (no idea why you would), as you said there is a mac version. I'm not sure what you mean by being less compatible, but having owned it, I can tell you it is MS Office just simply on a mac (apart from a couple insignificant features).

...but open office is free and does all the same things anyway.

Looking to pick up a laptop school/light gaming

Take a look at the laptop I'm planning on getting.

It way less than a grand. Has a better gfx card, processor is a tad slower but oh well, plus it look badass.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.
