Hello Andrew,

I use windows 7 and ms word and outlook and internet explorer at work.
I use mostly apple products at home. I use text edit or pages on my mac, making shore to save or convert documents to word documents if I need to take them to work.
However, I  write  all my briefs and letters at work. I can read work documents on my apple devices just fine if all  I need to do is read.
 I do not use excel or ms access very much at all, and cannot realy comment on the apple equivalent of numbers and keynote. 
Since I have an iphone 4s and an ipad, it is very easy to sync all of my appointments to my mac. 
I do use openbook at work, which is where I do all of my scanning.
if I should need to scan at home, I run windows in a virtual window  on my mac using a program called vm ware viewer, so that I can run openbook if needed.
If you wish to find a scanning program for the mac, you may want to look at serotech's  docu scan product. This e program is compatible with both windows and the mac, and I think if you own a license on one platform, serotech will let you have the other license on the other platform for a nominal fee. e. But check with serotech to be sure about the latter statements.

if you are seriously considering the mac, you may want to join a list even if only for a short time called macvisionaries. it is a google groups list. When I was deciding on whether to even get a mac, i joined this list, and the people who knew the mac inside and out, answered most if not all of my questions.
You will find some law students and lawyers on the list. So it could be a helpful resource.
