MacTech today released an extensive benchmark study of Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac running on the latest Intel-based Macs. MacTech‘s goal was to see how well Office applications performed under Rosetta (Apple’s technology to dynamically translate PowerPC-based applications to work on Intel-based Macs). The large suite of over 1000 tests was performed comparing the PowerBook G4, MacBook Pro, and the Intel-based iMac. The purpose of the testing and the article are to answer the questions “Does Microsoft Office 2004 run well enough on the new Intel-based Macs? Or should you delay your purchase of these machines?”
