Hi, I got my copy on DVD arrived perfectly, it's not boxed. Comes in a sleeve similar to how software is delivered with a new computer. You can download instead, but personally I prefer to have the DVD.

From site:-
Format: Official Microsoft DVD or Download

Does the Mac version of Office use Macros, VB etc?

I think 2011 excel can use macros and VBA. 2008 didn't however. You may want to check this up though.

I was thinking of getting a Mac, but am used to using VB in Windows. I presume it wouldn't be as capable.

Using it right now, can confirm VB editor built in to this one along with macros... not as good as Windows granted, but it does the job

Theres also the nice bibliography and contents page generator function for students, makes referencing a breeze!

Does Word still keep on reverting to US English all the time, even in the middle of editing something and not starting a new file?

I tried responding earlier with an image... moderation queue seems a little slow today
was trying to say yes you can use VB editor on a mac, as you can macros etc.
using it in MSword2011 right now.

You also get neat little features like contents page generators and bibliography tools that make referencing for students a breeze :)

when education was free? :p:D

In the future with £27000 tuition fees + 3 years rent, food and bills (all rapidly inflating) I think any sane student who is not from an aristocratic background would A) Avoid paying for on over rated, over priced mac in the first place. B) Use torrents for software, or use free alternatives.

To be fair, once a student has armed themselves with a laptop, there is very little needed to spend on software other than either this product (for PC of course not for a ***) or the free alternative from Open Office. No need to resort to torrents, and the associate crap that comes as a 'free gift' with them. Personally though, if I was buying MS Office, I wouldn't buy it from S4S on principal because of the deceitful transaction fee.

On the fees topic, I've been to a couple of university presentations, and the theme was that most students will never pay back their fees in total, because unless they are earning close to £50K, their balance will never reduce enough within the 25 year period after which it is written off. Despite the governments of both parties selling the concept of fees on the 'huge' salaries students will earn, in reality only a few will achieve those dizzy heights. Watch for another government crisis in 25 years time when they have to start writing off those debts! By that time, I'll be too old to care anyway.

Hmm, id say £50k's a bit over the top, working mine out at a debt of £29k from 3 years of university, if I earn more than £25k I'm set to pay off my loan in just under 22 years...

Either way, it's one of those things that's usually such a low rate of interest (last year or before, was a MINUS rate so it started to pay itself!) that it's not worth making any voluntary payments to - even if your mortgage, cars, bills, cards etc are clear stick the spare money in an ISA instead.

This _could_ change in the future, however.

Also, I believe it's something which has no effect on your credit rating so will not effect mortgages, cards and other loans.

That can't be right, unless i'm doing my sums wrong.

I owe £19600, assuming an average interest rate of 3% over the next 24 years, I'd have to earn an average of £27859 to pay it off at the end of 24 years.

Calculated as sum owed plus interest, and deducted 9% of earnings over £15000? Then that figure plus interest, deduct 9% of earnings over 15000...

Roll on write off day

EDIT: I don't think you're allowing any for interest at all?

I just looked at the calculator, but it only shows the current position. I'm referring to students starting in 2012 (which Spaceinvader was referring to with £27K fees).

The typical loan will then be £40K with payments required of 9% on salaries over £21K as opposed to £15K now. Therefore a person on £40K would pay back only £1710 in year 1. At 3% interest, this would add a further £1200 to the loan, so the student would only have paid back £510 in year 1. So it's easy to see how even on a salary of £40K, there's a fair chance it would not be paid back after 25 years. If interest rose to 4.28%, the student would still have all their original loan outstanding after 12 months.
