While the Windows-using world is gearing up for the release of Office 2010 this summer, Mac users will have to hang on for another year before getting their own new office suite in 2011. But it appears that Microsoft wants to show the Mac-using community that it still loves them and is giving away two custom-colored 2.53GHz MacBook Pro laptops.
The MacBook Pros will come with a custom paintjob in one of the colors of the software icons (blue, purple, orange or green). Of course, each winning laptop will also come with a copy of Office 2008 for Mac.
As detailed on the official webpage for the contest, entries are accepted via Twitter following or retweeting @officeformac. The contest is open to all in USA and Canada (except Quebec).
While someone may cry sacrilege at Microsoft for giving away an Apple product, there is some amusement value of a repainted MacBook Pro bearing a Microsoft Office logo right above the glowing Apple.
