It's been posted in the past, but the offer ran out and has now been re-activated this weekend (it wasn't active on Friday when I checked!). Apparently it comes and goes every academic year so some of you might have heard about it in the past, but it might be new to others, especially new students.

For some reason, the deal link is redirecting to the storefront, instead of the actual page for the deal, which is here: http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-uk/default.aspx (I've edited twice, but it still redirects wrong?)

This gives students Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate (full retail) version for £38.95 via download (you can buy physical media too, at extra cost).

OneNote 2007

For some reason the deal button is redirecting wrong?! I've edited it twice, but it keeps on defaulting to the wrong link...

It's here: http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-uk/default.aspx

Which is fine, but this deal is for Microsoft Office Ultimate... If people want Open Office, fine. To a lot of people, they prefer MS Office. ;-)

Just go to these guys and get Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 (not just nine but ten programs) for £35.00:

OpenOffice won't read/write dcx files (the reason why MS introduced this propriator format). You can get converters but it's inconvenient.

If you are lucky, your Uni is sensible and uses Open Office.

Many thanks - my wife is a teacher, and I will get one for her (via her school e-mail). I was aware of the Office enterprise for £35, but this wasn't for Staff as far as I could see, and we have no eligible offspring/grandchildren (yet).

Heat and rep.

Regards,

White.

Good deal...........Still don't really get the supposed benefits from Office 2007 over 2003. In fact i can do everything I need to do in office 97. But because MS are forcing a new head-wrecking interface down my throat I will have the tedious task of re-learning all the basics and where all the required buttons are.

Most average uses do not reap any/mush benefits from the newer version of Office.

I must admit I didn't like the new interface and especially the new propietary format of docx, xlsx, etc at first. But the interface has grown on me and I find it dead easy to use now (it didn't take long to get used to either).

There's a few extras like the new graphical features for pictures and things like that, too.

You can get an interface converter which gives the 2003 look and functions.

Cheers for the heads up. Im gonna look for that.

I myself don't like changes to Office 2007 much. Its seems a lot more complicated but most of my classmates have moved to Office 2007. This is a great deal for students like me.

Thanks.
#13
It's not just the interface that's better in 2007. I was a beta tester for it and only moved to it last year when I used the same deal, but the .docx format that it natively uses is so much better than the old .doc format. It;s not backwards compatible so watch out for saving documents at home and then taking them at the office or uni that still use 2003 and not being able to open them, but if they use 2007, it compresses documents so much more.

If like me you have huge word document files which hundreds of screenshots in for your university degrees, being able to save space on any of 4 USB pens I carry on me (a 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and a 16GB - yes I use a lot of space! but it's mostly for work and uni) then it's great.

Plus I'd rather get this deal and and get it direct from microsoft than from someone like Currys.

Seems a very good deal. have just gone back to uni so will snap this one up
#17
I hate the new version. Much prefer the old version but I suppose once you are familiar with it, it should be okay.

Word is quite odd with pictures; I think it stores it as bitmap or something similar which uses a lot of space.

You can get around it by inserting picture from file rather than directly pasting. Also use paint to resize your picture first. You can often turn a 10mb word file into a 1mb word file doing that.

Bought this when first on HD ordered, but found that with XP pro you have to have the original MS Office or it will not install, do not like MS word 7 to much hassle

So you need to carry round more than 30GB of Word documents with you? What on earth are you studying? :thinking:

:w00t:
#21
I didn't like openoffice at first, but you just got to think about it - its FREE and it doesnt everything you could ask of it. I encourage anyone who uses Microsoft Office to give it a go - it's not a big download and you can always uninstall it.
#22
great deal for the rest of the year, but until october 1st (when the one below expires) id recommend:

http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Office_Enterprise_2007-details.aspx

£35 for Office Enterprise, plus it is a DVD version, whereas the op's one you have to pay for the DVD of it.

However, both are perpetual licenses, so its a great deal with either option!

This is from the web site if you follow the link.

Do I need to have a version of Windows on my PC before I can upgrade to XP Pro or Vista Business?
Yes. Under Software4Students programme Microsoft provides students with an upgrade license to use operating system software. For a list of supported upgrade paths please check here. Microsoft restricts volume licensing programs to operating system upgrade products. If you need the full system product, you will have to buy it commercially.

You might of been a beta tester....but you definitely not using the program correctly if you require 30GB !!!! of storage for uni documents. Not unless your developing a multi-media encyclopaedia. But even they usually come on a couple of DVDs (2 x 4GB!) And you say Office 2007 is compressing these documents "so much more".........How much storage would you need using office 2003? 50Gb?
#27
Yeah at least give OpenOffice a try for £0 first. I found OO stumbled and couldn't handle one complex word document with forms etc in but otherwise it's been fine for me.

The advantage is you wil be able to read 2007 documents - with 2003 you can't read them as it didn't exist when 2003 was created.

I think that is for OS's, not the Office package...

I think you can save the file in the 2007 edition so that it can read on all office editions such as 98
