Yes, I know you can get OpenOffice for free, but if you really must have M$ office this is pretty cheap at the moment.

not a bad price.
Add on another £90 if you want Outlook though.
#2
Nice find - got myself a laptop so with two PCs decided it was about time to bite the bullet.

Don't forget Nectar eStores points on Amazon - only cashback/rebate/discount opportunity I know of anyway)

And following another thread's logic : opportunity to save another £1.50 on that by buying at PCWorld with price match against Amazon (see the PC World price match promise) as £15 more at PCW.
#3
greasypalm cashback allow you to get cashback on amazon (normally in ya account within 5 days )
#4
No-where else does cashback for AMAZON UK.
#5
alternatively download openoffice - it's free and nearly as good

http://www.openoffice.org/

edit :just read the ops post, there is little general difference between the two, cant see any reason to use M$ version
#6
open office is overrated and HUGE, takes ages to load up simple things - totally useless if you ask me! - as an experienced office user with a quick pc, that's my opinion. this is a good price for people who want to use a legit copy!

How exactly? At a price of precisely £0, you can accept a few compromises - but I'd like to know the specific problems you have with it.
and HUGE
So what? A couple of hundred megabytes is loose change with today's disk drives - just what is the problem?

Aren't you using the Quick Starter?

EVERYONE thinking of shelling out money on this should try OpenOffice first and not be put off by people determined to pick holes in it. What have you got to lose?

It's not as pretty and less intuitive for a start. Not enormous gripes really, but Micro$oft office is definitely more polished.

It's not just the disk space (although big drives is no excuse for bloat), it seems to be a bit of a resource hog and does take a while to start.

No, I try not to use quickstart type things for any applications. My PC takes long enough to start up without adding more bloat that I may or may not use at that sitting.

I have tried it and honestly do generally prefer open-source software where they're available (PHP, Apache, Filezilla, Firefox) AND have a passionate hatred for both Micro$oft and Apple, but sometimes they're just not up to scratch and I think OOo is one of those at the minute.

I dont know how ms can justify the huge prices for their software, when they then offer students and nhs staff things like this.

Are we subsidising this lot?

I bought mine yonks ago. Always good to have legit.

@beanoni: OK - it's good to put some flesh on the bones of your argument. While it might not be for you, you haven't really got any killer reasons why it's not worth trying, at a price of £0. "Bloat" is merely a philosophical objection on today's machines, and startup times won't be a problem for many people if they use the Quick Starter and if they tend to use sleep or hibernate rather than shut down their computers. And if you are complaining about bloat you should also consider the files it generates - in my experience .odfs tend to be quite a bit smaller than .docs.

A couple of advantages OO has: one-click creation of PDFs, and a native file format that will not become obsolete over time, so you will not find that you can no longer read your old documents, unlike what has happened with MS formats.

Of course there are also many other free office suites to try, even under Windows.

Office is Microsoft's cash cow. Because everyone thinks they can only use MS Office because it's the only software 100% (and sometimes not even that) compatible with the closed file formats it uses, MS can charge it likes - or it could, but finally alternatives which have to be free to compete against this monopoly are making inroads, so MS is desperate to hook people in early.

We wouldn't allow roads to be built which would only Ford cars could use, but unfortunately the office suite market is the exact analogy of this.

I have a family member working for the NHS. Could they purchase a copy for me, or is there some sort of system which restricts the end user?
#22
The system is the law. You make the choice whether or not to use software illegally.
#23
You ll get Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote(pretty useless application) probably created to substitute for the more popular Outlook. - Outlook Academic is about £50 to £60 inc VAT.

you have no experience of it and no expectations obviously - it's dead slow, like it chugs along compared to office. - download MS for free... torrent :whistling: - Martin Lewis told me the same thing - but hey, I'm sure he can afford a legit copy of MS anyway :) hypocrit?!

THANK YOU! Hence why they are free and MS is not.

Looks well dodgy - I don't like the way they don't let you browse the retailers or get any access to the site unless you register. I use topcashback as an alternative to quidco, although they too don't do amazon cashback.

Strictly speaking, no, but noone is going to know or care if they buy it legally and then pass it on to you.

OpenOffice used to be like that, but if you haven't used it recently I'd recommend giving it another chance - the latest versions are a lot faster and less bloated. Although I agree the "freeware" version of MS Office is the way to go :whistling:

You are completely wrong. I and colleagues use it often, for large and small documents, and it works extremely well. Are your experiences based on old versions, or are you just being prejudiced?

Besides which, as I've said, there is a whole slew of alternatives. I presume you've used all of those too - NOT! :)

Who are you, Robocop? That's not really a very helpful response, in any sense of the term.

I was trying to establish whether or not there is an end user agreement which prevents those who purchase it giving it to somebody else. There is no such preventative measure in the Office EULA if I buy a copy in PC World for a family member, so I was trying to establish whether any such system existed for NHS employee copies.

If anyone else can help without providing ridiculously judgemental and unhelpful advice, I'd really appreciate it.

:thumbsup:

Why would you pay more for this version and not get the professional one?

What a peculiar response! Have you any idea how many people don't have a clue about the restrictions on software usage? Just because evidently you happen to know, there's no need to take such offence.

Why don't you ask Microsoft (via the UK website)? In my limited experience they are responsive to emails. Is that non-judgmental enough for you? :?

Argh - my mistake - see what you mean!

When it was originally listed however the price in the mainbody of the listing was the £64.97 without anything I saw about needing to spend £49.99 on stuff to get it for £64.99 - so I think the offer you've identified is actually a different one, but still valid/useful - if spending the required £49.99.

(Quite agree with your comments about stealing the MS Student edition - pointless exercise, if you're going to steal software then paying for an invalid licence just means there's two thieves, not just one.)
