    iLife '11 is a welcome and long-overdue update to Apple's suite of digital media applications and we can easily recommend picking this up. 1

    Office 2011 for Mac

    CNET Rating8.0
    User Rating1.0

    Microsoft made a big leap with this latest version for the Mac — not only has it nearly reached feature parity with the Mac counterparts to Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but it has finally added Outlook, the email and scheduling client Mac business fans have been clamouring for for years. 5

  • Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business

    Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business

    CNET Rating8.0
    User Rating5.6

    Microsoft Office 2010 is a worthy upgrade for businesses and individual users who need professional-level productivity apps, but it will take some time to get acclimatised with the reworked interface. 17

    CNET Rating7.0
    User Rating3.0

    Despite some compatibility setbacks, Corel Home Office suite is useful for creating documents. Its conscientious size, small-screen optimisations, and attractive price make it a good buy for a Netbook office suite, or for saving space by shedding advanced features. 1

    Intuitive interface design and easy access to useful features make iWork the best office suite choice on the Mac. Though it lacks some of Microsoft Office's advanced options, iWork '09 is an emerging powerhouse in its own right. 1

    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred

    CNET Rating8.0
    User Rating9.5

    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 isn't perfect, but it's the best dictation software available. We don't find this upgrade necessary for the most basic dictation, although new features may benefit heavily-accented English speakers and those who rely heavily on voice commands. 4

  • Quickbooks QBi 2008/2009

    Quickbooks QBi 2008/2009

    CNET Rating8.5
    User Rating2.4

    Existing users of Reckon's line of accounting packages have the best reason in years to upgrade with the QBi series. New users should find the attractive pricing of the entry-level versions pretty compelling too. 17
