microssoft office slow

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
why my old laptop 1.6 ghz 512 sdram intel centrino is more faster than my new powermac G5 dual core 2ghz 1 gig ddr2 ram in every microsoft office application??

, especially word and powerpoint...and sometimes, it wont responding, and crashed... is it beacause my osx is still 10.4.2?

    it's actually more likely to be that MS Office is a badly coded POS. It runs slow on all the macs I've ever had including a Quad G5, a dual 1.8G5, dual 2 gig g5, and for my sins I even had to use it on an original g4. It's also slow on my new iMac but that is running through rosetta with 512mb ram

    yeah, on my 1.5ghz amd athalon pc., word runs much faster. and on my 20" macintel, its really bad. it loads faster on my 800mhz pc... its gay.. so i use my ibook to type stuff...
