    If I find that our site license doesn't cover office:mac then I'll try openoffice. I'd prefer to stick with office but as our IT budget is blown and this is an 'unofficial' mac I won't be able to increase our site license spend until the summer

    If your aggreement does include Mac Office then you should be able to purchase the media directly from the supplier for a one time fee. Even better if you have full Microsoft Volume licensing you should be able to log on to the MVLS site with your assisiated MS passport account and download the installation media iso for no cost at all.

    there is neo office but that seems a bit pointless considering open office now runs natively

    The definitive answer to the Office question.

    I obtained admin access to our MS volume licensing account, went to the licensed downloads section and there was Office 2008 and 2004 for the mac. I burned the 2008 iso to dvd, popped it into the mac and installed a squeaky clean, licensed and effectively free Office:mac 2008 suite

    Excellent!
