I just got a previously-loved MacBook from a friend. It's been factory reset and all I need to do is add software. I have access to a new version of MS Office (2011) for a good price, but I'm not sure I should even load this on my Mac. I've done all the software updates and the Mac is now at OS X 10.5.8. Should I bother with adding this newest version of Office? Or should I try and find an older version which will be less taxing on the system? All I need for this Mac is word processing at this point. I'm a student and I got this computer strictly for carrying back and forth to school for writing papers.


Any advice is appreciated!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
