# Beware don’t get Mac Office 2008 Student Edition…

Yikes, the Windows Student Edition was just cheaper, but "Anandtech":http://anandtech.com/mac/showdoc.aspx?i=3215&p=2 points out that this Mac version has a $130 student edition *without* Exchange support while the$350 version has Exchange support. I now own two copies of an absolutely useless Student Edition as a result. Arrgggh! There is an even more useless Special Media Edition which is \$440 (can you believe that?) that has some sort of media cataloging application.

While this version is native Intel, it does lose VBA support so macros essentially aren't going to work anymore. And of course there is yet another new file format to deal with!
