You can't use your version of MS Office on Mac, because it's only a PC version. But you can buy a Mac version. Installing Windows on Mac is... well, why to have Mac then? Mac OS X gives you more possibilities.
So my opinion is, if you want to buy a MacBook Pro:
It's great - I use it myself. Installing Windows on it is useless. You will kill all the great features. Buy a version of MS Office for Mac and use it.
And if it's about the discs... As a normal user you won't notice a difference. HDD offers you more space so I would take it.

If you want to run MS Office (Win) on a Mac you would need to install a Virtual Machine, such as Parallels Desktop, and also a version of Windows. This is an expensive solution.
Much better/cheaper to get a copy of MS Office for Mac.

The thing is I am an engineering student, so I probably will need Windows in the future, that's why I prefer to have both. I chose to buy the Macbook because after doing some reasearch it really is the best powerful, upgradable, portable and durable notebooks that are out there.
If I buy parallels and Windows, can I use then my MS Office for PC on my Macbook?
