I've recently started an IT course at college and I needed Office software.I was delighted to find Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus from software4students for £38.95 !
This is approved by Microsoft and is not some dodgy deal (see Microsoft link further on)
You can download immediately or have it sent to you by disc.
I chose the disc option.(I noticed there was a transaction charge of £1.95 but I'm unsure as to whether this would be only for the postal option so if I need to edit price to £40.90 please let me know)
You may:
a.install and use a copy of the Software on one personal computer or other device;
b.install an additional copy of the Software on a second, portable device for the exclusive use of the primary user of the first copy of the Software.
Under the terms of the programme each student is entitled to one copy only of each version of the software

Yeah these deals are very regularly being offered... as a student myself I get emailed them all the time. Very good though... bear in mind, if you're not a student and you purchase this, you are violating the licensing terms, thus stealing it in effect.

Heat anyway :)

If you choose the disc option do you just get a blank disc or like retail?

How do MS actually monitor if your a Student or not ? or can anyone just buy it and install it on a few PC's with no questions asked !

Thanks

Not strictly true. "The main requirement to purchase is that the end user licensee must be a student or be a faculty member in one of our listed educational institutions.", this can be Primary, Secondary, University or a relative of a pupil on behalf of a pupil or a teacher. Also, if your school isn't on the list currently, it can be added.

A good deal but has been this price for ages now...

as stated in the last post any parent can get this deal, even children in a school cresh where on the list, I got a copy of Windows 7 recently using my 8 yr olds details.
Also should be noted there is a small admin fee so ends up just over £40 - excellent deal !
#17
just seen the transaction charge in the post, and yes it is also if you opt for the download option as well !

Not so. There are few, if any, checks on this, and it's rumoured that Microsoft are well aware - they take the line that it's better to sell it for £40 or so than get nothing from an illegal download.
#19
Very good deal this, worth re-posting every month just to remind people....

I ordered windows 7 pro (download option) and MS Office 2010 (delivered option) last week. Both for £80!

Good thing about MS Office is that its 2 User so can be installed on 2 computers ;)

Quite so.
I wonder how long it'll take Adobe to realise that ! oO
#21
For people who don't have kids but work for companies using ms office, ask about the Microsoft home user programme (HUP). I picked up office 10 for £9 earlier this week. Also they have the new Mac:Office (also Microsoft) for the same price. Bargain.
#22
as previously asked by someone else but not answered, if you opt for the disk do you get a retail version or just a disk with a sticker on it?
#23
No need for a student email and the download link is sent instantly. Cracking price and I am extremely happy with it! Bought it when it was posted last time. Have some heat!

It's a disk in a sleeve. The registration code in on a sticker on the sleeve
There's no box or instructions with it.

Was just thinking about getting this. I knew it had been posted before. But have some heat for me not having to do a search for the last post ;)
#26
£39.80 including disc & delivery from rm.com/thebasement.
If you have kids in primary/middle/secondary or uni students - this one is available to all.

OpenOffice is free, more lightweight and a lot better than this, has a proper toolbar too

Why bother with stupid licensing terms and restrictions which dictate what you can do with something you've just bought? Why bother even putting in the effort to pirate it when there's a much better free alternative?

This is not worth £40 and certainly not worth £400
#29
i bought the exact same thing for university in september. back then it was £40 i think, so i wouldnt call this a particularly good deal.

also, its a download, meaning you wont get a pack containing cd's etc

Agree & i use OO but schools & uni's are geared towards MS products (as are most companies). Most (non tech) people would prefer to use a familiar programme. I use Ubuntu on my laptop which (imho) is far superior to Win7 & doesn't require me to install an anti-virus programme, but i understand why people stick to MS products. I bought this deal in December because i have 2 @ uni & it makes their lives easier!!

I got this from work for less than £10 - EIGHT quid actually - about 6 weeks ago. Worth asking your tech people to see if you're entitled, people.
I was the first to ask at my place. The tech people seemed to want to keep this for themselves.....

Absolutely.
But OO don't do a version of Publisher, do they ?
And thats the big selling point for me.

This is always the price, this is not a deal! We use them through our school and it's always this cheap

I use OO and NeoOffice too. But why bother moaning when it's a good deal compared to retail?

I have an "unofficial" version of office 2003 which i am very happy with but this is a great price!

Heat added!

And with that attitude, schools and unis will always be geared towards Microsoft, even though it makes sense for them to go with OO if just for financial reasons.

OO is a familiar program, based on the fact that it has a familiar and user-friendly toolbar and menu system....you know, the one I've been using since before Windows even existed that Microsoft decided they'd like to change. When I saw the Office 2007 toolbar, I lol'd, a lot, though, if I'd have been forced to use it on a regular basis, I'd probably have cried.

I've wondered for a while if anyone actually uses that thing. Please tell me you don't make websites in it?

Because I still think it's a ripoff





Anyway, I'm pretty sure when I was at college we could get all of the MS stuff for free from the college on a scheme that came direct from Microsoft

Good deal

openoffice and neooffice as well as lotus are good but don't come close to the functionality provided by this

Try and give some thought as to why Microsoft do these offers to students / Enterprise / HUP etc schemes. It might save you from another very embarrassing posting. Still, gave us all a laugh here ... thanks
