Hello,

They are different. The CD/Download version has the ability to enter your information using the Forms method or EasyStep Interview. TurboTax Online only has the EasyStep Interview.

If you have a Mac, you need to use TurboTax Online.

Here's some additional resources:

Would have been nice to know this before I purchased.
