Does Office 2011 for Mac Home and Business work with Macbook Air v. 10.7.1 purchased with Lion already installed?

I bought this when it was released in July 2011. All the questions relate to earlier versions of Air.

  • Best Answer:

    Yes, Microsoft Office 2011 works great on a MacBook Air with Lion. Make sure you run the Microsoft Updator after you install as it will fix the few incompatabilities with Lion. It should run automatically the first time you open an Office application.
