I just purchased a mid 2010 Mac Mini, running 10.6.8. I have several documents made with MS office 2004 on my old computer (G5) using 10.5.8. I understand that I won't be able to run office 2004 in 10.6.8. I really need to be able to open those documents. Can I do that with iPage? It a lot cheaper than a new version of office!

Pages will open .DOC files. So will Open/Libre Office. If you want something very light weight and fast, download Bean. It's small, free and opens most anything. Developer isn't making updates but it runs like a champ. I use it for most of my word processing needs, it's 10x faster then anything else out there.

You can run Office 2004 for Mac on a system running 10.6.8, just ensure Rosetta is installed. Rosetta lets you run PowerPC based application on an Intel based Mac.

It's when you get into 10.7 10.8 10.9 that you can no longer use Rosetta.

Will that work with Quark 6.1 as well?
