First Look: Office for Mac 2011 preview

1:20 /

CNET editor Scott Stein demos some of the new features of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 preview, which will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi. I'm Scott Stein, and this is the First Look at Office Mac 2011 Preview. Now, Mac users might want an experience with office that matches a little more of what you can get out of office for Windows, and the good news is that later this year, Office Mac looks like it's going to be promising an experience that's a lot like office for Windows and gives a few new wrinkles and features that we haven't seen before, notably Outlook. And one of the advantages of Outlook should be that the database files actually are going to be saved as a bunch of files instead of one large one. What that means is easier spotlight searching and in additions, should work better with time machine. Now, on the Microsoft Word side, a cool thing is that it works a lot more seamlessly with Microsoft's web apps. Now Apple has a lot of great software, but one thing they're not so fantastic with is working in the cloud. One nice thing about Word on Office Mac 2011 is that it works seamlessly with Microsoft's web apps, allowing you to save to its cloud environment and also pull documents off from light editing to actually bringing it down in a word for a more full-featured editing. We'll find out a lot more as we get closer, but you should expect it later this year, and it should be a nice surprise for anybody who's looking to really turn their Mac into a full office machine. I'm Scott Stein, and this has been a First Look at Office Mac 2011 preview. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
