    Go to Amazon and do a search for Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.

    My granddaughter is a freshman and they required the Microsoft Office for certain classes she is taking. I got her the Mac version for her Macbook (laptop) from Amazon and it's working like a charm.

    You are wise to shop for software before picking an OS platform.

    Fortunately, there is a version of QuickBooks and Microsoft makes an Office for Mac suite as well. If those are the two main programs/suites that you need, you are good to go.

    What Fautsy82 said! I use both of these programs in my small business on my iMac. Both work great!

    Now that being said, spill it. What kind of iMac (spec wise) are you planning on getting? And no sparing of details allowed.

    Ever heard of or used LO ?, (LibreOffice), previously I used OpenOffice, switched to LO when the developers broke away. Been using OO for years, LO since its inception. Work in a 3 person office. LOVE it, same as Microsoft Office or better in some circumstances. Check it out, Home LibreOffice
