Pre-Order Microsoft Office For Mac 2011 for £38.06

I previously submitted a similar offer regarding purchasing 2008 from Software4Students and upgrading to 2011.

However, you can also now pre-order Office 2011 for Mac from RM for £38.06 eliminating the risk/delay of having to upgrade with Microsoft.

Don't like the fact that the EULA states you may only use the software while you're a student...So effectively you get 1-5 years (depending on course)...If you're becoming a doctor, fine worthwhile...

Is that so bad when the lifecycle of Microsoft Office is almost exactly 3 years?

Granted...But I still feel as though I am not buying, but renting the software...And I personally don't upgrade office every time a new release comes out.


I'm sure we're going to agree to disagree here, but in many ways when you can rent for a lower value than purchasing, it is often the best way, especially when a product has a quite obvious life attached to it.

Retail version = approx £130 (and that's a cheap price), let's say you get 5 years out of it (which is most likely above average), that's ~£26 per year. If you had this version for 3 years (average uni course and the lowest life of this product) then you'd be paying ~£13 per year, with the option to then get the latest retail version out after graduation.

Thats obscene. You should be able to keep the stuff as long as you want. You would think they would let you have that honour seen as though you paid for it. No wonder everyone pirates. Meh, Open office is fine anyway, or just source it some other way

No, I won't disagree :) I honestly see your point, but for me I don't like the idea of renting my software, unless it's games...I always try before I buy with my lovefilm subscription...

Working for a software company (open-source though), I can't condone sourcing it "another way".

Voted HOT btw cause it is a good deal for those looking for this product...

I'm sure the NHS office 'rental' scheme has not been renewed therefore it couldnt be carried on if u entered the NHS...

Top price for this.

you can, some people just have an overkill conscience.

I wonder if anyone actually un-installs this on the day they cease to be eligible to use it, or whether MS even give a toss.

Thing is though, if you were to download and run a dodgy copy I suspect MS would give a toss if they found out, but I bet you'd be breaking exactly the same copyright law.

Good price its a great piece of software.
#13
Good deal but for students only. Shame this thread has come down to (like so many others) a slagging match about the product and/or manufacturer.

Bought Office 2008 for Mac on clearance at Argos for £59.99 earlier this month, used a £5 voucher and it comes with an upgrade to Office 2011.

It's a great product and Office 2011 for Mac looks to be the best Office offering yet regardless of O/S. Open office will suffice so some but the old adage applies ... get what you pay for.

Yes it is such a terrible shame that people suggested free alternatives or pointed out the drawbacks of paying for software that you can't (legally) use in a few years time. A crying shame. Nay, a travesty of epic proportions. I mean seriously, what were they thinking? That people could actually benefit from this information? The fools.
#15
Plenty of pre-registered versions on your favourite torrent sites if you feel a tad naughty.
#16
Getting all sorts of hassle from Software4students at the moment trying to get software for my 2nd child. Poor communication and patronising emails. Not impressed. Inital order went smoothly.

I have to agree with the original comment to be honest. Regardless of free alternatives, or what they can offer in comparison to Office 2011, and regardless of the licensing, this still works out to be (as the whole concept of this site is around), a "good deal". If I could rent the latest version of Office for £13 per year, I'd grab the opportunity, and I'm pretty sure many others would too.

To add my humble opinion, yes OpenOffice is free, but the investment in Microsoft Office is clearly noticeable, just take a look at the interfaces and you can tell it is years ahead. Additionally, people like familiarity; most office places invest in Microsoft products, so it makes sense to use and improve on using the same suite at home, and for students it is extremely useful to get familiar with these products before moving into employment.

But everyone is entitled to their opinion, I am a Mac user (and use Linux servers on a day-to-day basis), but yet I wouldn't comment on all the Windows deals saying they should consider a free Linux alternative.

Interested in 2011, I have 2008 but always find myself using iWork 09 instead, just prefer everything about it. Only use Office to double check files when people request Word or PowerPoint format but always create them in iWork first.

i know exactly what you mean here, i do the same thing. Having said that, office 2011 is quite good, takes a few tips from iwork by the looks of things.

The best thing of all, Visual Basic is back in excel!!! No more running parralells and the windows version, just to use VB in excel any more.

Great price, although iWork 11 is due out real soon and I personally prefer to uses Pages and Keynote etc.

I'm buying it for my son, he's 5 and in Year 1 Primary so, if he does well at school and gets onto a 5yr medical degree course then we're good for, what, 20 years?!

I ordered the 2008 version from Software4Students but my request to cancel was met with an email saying it has been despatched so a bit of cost/hassle to return for refund rather than risk MS refusing my free upgrade to 2011.

mattyboy1982 - roughly how long after placing your order did you receive the software? I'm really interested in ordering this, though it says 'Usually despatched within 2-3 weeks' on the site which seems a bit of a long wait!
