I've always just used Office for Mac and it's done its job and never caused me any problems.

Office for mac. I always use .doc or .docx (and .ppt etc.) so office is just the obvious choice. I use the same edition for Widows on my home computer.

Getting the SSD is well worth it at that price. I'm looking at getting one soon when the price drops a bit more!
One bit of advice i will give you if you ever have to send your Macbook back to Apple for whatever reason is to swap the SSD for the original HDD as i've heard stories of Apple technicians taking out the SSD in Macbooks and replacing them back with a HDD and claiming that the SSD in your machine is broken, i've only heard it a few times and i'm struggling to find the thread on Mac Rumours about it.
it could possible be some dickish technicians though probably nothing to worry about that much.
It is true that it happens.
It makes much more sense to get RAM and an SSD from an external source.
RAM & SSD from Apple
£275 - you only have the 8GB Ram
£240 - you only have the 128GB SSD
Total cost = £515
Ram from External Source (Crucial)
£96.34 - 8GB RAM
£238.51 -128GB SSD
Total cost = £334 + you still have old 4GB RAM and Old 250,320 or 520GB Hard Drive as backup.
So you essentially get more whilst saving £181.
