Using Excel on a Macbook. I made the switch from PC to Mac about a year ago and although there are some nuances to running Excel on the Mac verse a PC, you will.
(Founder, ExcelUser) Sep 11, 2013 Although I haven't used Excel on a Mac for years, I think you should be fine with Mac Excel. First, I sell some fairly advanced Excel dashboard templates, and also an ebook about how to create Excel dashboards. I've sold a lot of them, in nearly every country in the world. But I've *never* had a request for a refund from a Mac user because my products didn't work on a Mac.
Because of this experience, I feel safe in saying that virtually anything I can do in Excel worksheets on a PC others can do in Excel worksheets on a Mac. (However, there *might* be some minor inconsistencies with VBA between PCs and the Mac because of differences in the two operating systems. Dunno.) Second, I have a friend who's a very opinionated Excel MVP. He purchased a Mac about six months ago so he could better support a client. If he had found inconsistencies between PC and Mac Excel, he would have whined about them in our private Excel MVP forum.
(CFO, Solstice Mobile) Sep 11, 2013 I made the switch from PC to Mac about a year ago and although there are some nuances to running Excel on the Mac verse a PC, you will get used to it once you learn the shortcuts as you probably use on the PC. Keep in mind if you are using any current features in the latest version of Excel for Windows that they might not be available on the Mac since they seem to be a version or two behind but I haven't hit a snag yet. The overall reason why I like the Mac now is that it's just a more intuitive system and things seem to just work!

The main lack I find is the absence of the statistical analysis tools (analysis toolpack, as I recall). Cool Apps To Download On Mac.
