Microsoft Office Use on Apple Platform - What's it like...

Am considering purchasing an Apple for numerous reasons, but I am an experienced MS Access programmer and enjoy working in that platform.
1. How does it compare in operation/functionality between platforms?
2. Are databases created on the Apple platform compatible with the Win platform (native, not runtime use)?
3. Are there functions or controls available in the Win platform but not the Apple?
4. General comments or something I haven't thought of?

TIA,
Robert

There is no "Mac Access". I believe there's a version of Office for Mac, but it doesn't include Access. You could run a Windows emulator on the Mac and run Office/Access from there, but I've heard that Access can give quite a few problems in an emulator.
