Re: Help required

Install Adium for chatting - Gtalk etc. Really good application.
Browser choice should be Firefox as Safari is not good. Chrome is heavy.
Perian for installing video codecs.
NTFS-3G for accessing your NTFS external hard disks - http://sourceforge.net/projects/catacombae/files/NTFS-3G for Mac OS X/2010.10.2/


I am looking for MS Office cracked version.
Please anyone can help me with that
No. Read the forum rules.

Quite honestly, it is really weird that you guys buy phones costing above Rs. 25,000....laptops of Rs. 60,000...but can't spare Rs. 3000 for Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.

IMHO, I think OP should download and try LibreOffice before going for MS Office. LibreOffice is a very good substitute for MS Office. Its interface is reasonably similar to older Office (without ribbon) though it may be lacking in a few features that may be needed by very specialised set of users only... iWork is another alternative but it is not free and its interface is completely different from Office...

Really, you can at least try it. If you find it lacking then go for paid alternatives.

When you were ready to pay a premium to get a mac, why not buy the softwares you need too?
MS Office is a paid software and so are many others. But a lot of free software exist that get the same job done.
As Alien and sakumar79 suggested try LibreOffice. It isnt pretty looking (as compared to MS Office) But is more than sufficient for most word-processing needs.

Yes its an Indian product and I have got Indian warranty with it.
BTW all the Macs come with International warranty.
And yes I have registered it on the Apple's site.
I want to buy a protection plan but running I can't spare that much so will buy after some time(as one can buy the plan before the 1yr warranty gets over).
