2 star(s) Doesn't have full features of PC Version

By savannahnan Verified Buyer from Savannah, GA on 1/6/2010

Primary Use: Personal
Cons: Not Powerful Enough
Describe Yourself: Quality Oriented

I primarily wanted to move some Excel spreadsheets over from my PC to my new MAC. I found that data entry was much more cumbersome with this program because, instead of having the auto-fill feature and completing entry into cells as you type, it gives you a drop-down list that you have to mouse over and select from. REALLY slows down data entry. Has other similar inconveniences throughout. While it's better than nothing, it was disappointing.
