Hi everyone,
I'm going to be getting a MacBook within the coming days (Yeah!) but I have so much stuff on my PC. What would be the best way to transfer my Microsoft 2003 documents (mostly just stuff in Word) to my new Mac? Thanks for all of your help, because I don't even know where to start!

Hello CommMajor101,

I would put the files on a CD or flash drive then transfer them across to the mac.
Regards,

Alan.

Right, but what about my microsoft files? do i need to individually upload and save them as apple files? How do I get my Microsoft files to open and work on a Mac computer, I guess is what I'm asking. Thanks for your help nigglesnush85

If the mac can't view or read the files you may have to install the application that you used in windows. You can run windows pretty well on mac using http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/

Hi there, I too converted to Apple. I personally used a flash memory stick to transfer files. I did invest in the Microsoft Office package they do now, so I have no problems opening any Word files.
