Yes I heard that the Quicken for Mac is total crap, at least thats what almost all the reviews indicate... I found and installed an app called iBank to track and view my financial stuff, so far so good, I like it for the budgeting layout, it has "envelopes" that you assign a name and amount etc. to budget whatever you want... I have my 401K and HSA accounts on there too along with checking and savings... Probably not a good replacement for Quicken, but for basic home finance stuff might just be the ticket!!!
The Microsoft Office 2011 program suite has- Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook... It allows you to view, edit, create etc. any of these type Microsoft programs/formats right on your Mac... I too have expense reports I must do weekly and send in to the office, like yours they are Excel and with this software it's just like it was on a PC... Awesome, but a little pricey...
Lion should be a free upgrade for you if you wanted to do it... I have no idea the difference being all new to Mac, in fact they had just released Lion 2-3 days prior to my purchase and while at the Apple store to pickup my machine the sales dude took my iMac out of the box and started the upgrade to Lion right there on the spot, then unplugged it, back in the box, then when I plugged it in at home it finished the install... Guy never asked if I wanted to keep Snow Leopard or make the upgrade to Lion, he made the decision for me!!!
