But in Adobe's case, if one needs apps with huge amounts of ram, then that would rate higher in priority. But with Office it doesn't.

Twice the number of GPRs available. Also, 64-bit memory space can help Excel, but given the choice between a 32-bit native app with the polish of Word 5.1 and a 64-bit app with the polish of Office 2007, I would pick the former.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Outlook for Mac seems pretty enticing. Here's hoping Microsoft doesn't make a watered down or half baked version. They're losing ground as a company and FAST. You'd think with the slow shift of more and more people migrating to Mac, it would garner more of their resources.
