Microsoft Office 2008 (for Mac)

To use Microsoft Office Professional 2008 for Mac, you will need:

Component Requirement
Hardware A Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (500 MHz or faster) processor
Operating System Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or later
Memory 512 MB of RAM
Hard Disk1  1.5 GB of available hard disk space. HFS+ hard disk format (also known as Mac OS Extended or HFS Plus)
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM DVD drive or connection to a local area network (if installing over a network) 
Display 1024 x 768 or higher-resolution monitor

Additional items or services required to use certain features:

Internet Access Internet connection through either an Internet service provider (ISP) or a network. Internet access might require a separate fee to an ISP; local or long-distance telephone charges might also apply.

1 The hard disk should be in Mac OS Extended (HFS+) format, the default format for Mac OS X. Although you can perform a drag-and-drop installation of and run Office 2004 from a hard disk that is in another format, Microsoft does not currently support such a configuration. To determine the format of your hard disk, see the Devices and Volumes tab of Apple System Profiler.
