After similar struggles I have resorted to PNG for insertion in PowerPoint 
on the Mac. At, say, 500x600 pixels, PNG works quite nicely even though it 
isn't a vector format.

(I've also used PNG in LaTeX-based presentations for plots that would 
otherwise take several seconds for Preview to render. The results are 
better in LaTeX, but ok in PowerPoint).
