Mac has its own free office suit

The current version of Office for Mac is quite a way behind the Windows version - if you intend to buy outright (rather than as a subscription) it's make sense to hold off

Equivalents programs that come free on Apple are Numbers (excel), Pages (Word) and Keynote (powerpoint). I believe all can open their counterparts so no need to buy any others.Plus of course they are all available on all devices in the iCloud so you can open and edit on whatever device you have and they are all automatically updated. Sweet.

This you get an office compatible programs for free on macbooks, bugger paying for products you don't need

. unless you use fairly complex excel files, then things turn pear shaped.

If you deal with people who use PC's then make sure you get a program whose files can be read by a PC. My life is plagued sometimes by mac lovers sending me Pages documents and other unintelligible mac offerings. Even Word for macs can balls things up for PC's reading supposedly compatible documents, things like font differences and formatting of pages can stuff up a mac document on a PC - and probably vice versa. Perhaps best of all, get a PC and join the mainstream.
