no, its a POwerPC app that was designed to run on OS9 (referred to as Classic in OS X). The intel macs no longer run OS9 apps in classic mode

You can either buy Office for Mac 2008, or get the free office suite Neo Office

I double checked the office disk, it's Microsoft Office X, does that have the same problem as office 2001?

Office X was designed for OS X (hence the name), so it'll run under Rosetta on an intel Mac. So it will work, but TBH it will still be fairly slow and in order to be compatible with newer versions of Office, you might want to look into the latest version.

Office 2008 is fairly affordable for home / personal use!

Do as suggested above and don't even consider Office X on your Intel ~ you will be very disappointed.
