I need Rosetta/MS Office 2004. I didn't realize how badly I needed it until I upgraded to MS Office 2011 on my new June 2012 Macbook Pro that came preinstalled with Lion.
I am getting mixed messages regarding the possibility of downgrading Lion from this new computer that I've had a mere 34 days to Snow Leopard, where I believe I will be able to continue to use MS Office 2004 (please correct me if I'm wrong). I know people do this on older computers--I am specifically concerned about the likelihood of it working out on this June 2012 Macbook Pro.
Is it possible to downgrade on this new computer or is the hardware somehow incompatible? Is there a tutorial you can point me to to help me downgrade?
Please talk to me like I'm 6 years old, I'm not the tech savviest.
