You qualify to buy this if you're the parent or grandparent or guardian of a student. I have no idea how they could possibly check out the details that you register. The registration process requires you to name a school.

The checkout has the following disclaimer:
Please note that you must be an Eligible User in order to install and run the Microsoft software products that you buy from us. If you are not eligible - for example, if you use the products in a commercial enterprise or business - you will be required by Microsoft to acquire a separate licence for that use.

Anybody able to explain how Microsoft could enforce such a requirement?

edit:
From http://www.software4students.co.uk/article.aspx?articleid=software4students__am_i_eligible
1. All School, College and University students and their family members are eligible!

2. No Student ID required for Microsoft Software: As an Official Microsoft Partner, our offers extend beyond .ac.uk email address holders so that any family member or guardian can afford to buy on behalf of a pupil or student. Student ID required for Adobe Products.

3. You receive Full Professional version software at an academic price for lifetime use at home only.

You need to be a student or parent/guardian of one - full details are on the Software4Students site.

I've ordered Office 2007 Enterprise edition from these guys in the past....great service.

From what I can remember the Microsoft items does not need student verification but the Adobe software does.

Hope that helps a little
#12
Only way I could afford Office 2007 Enterprise. I'm going it give it a try:)
#13
Excellent, made up student and college and is on ot's way, Great find op. Heat added.
#14
WIth regards to the licence (don't know much about this). The FAQs say you can install the software on one system and one additonal portable device - although this seems to be a generic FAQ for their products. Does the "one licence only" bit at the top of the page mean I would need to buy two copies, i.e. one for the desktop and one for the laptop?
#15
What's with the 32bit? I thought they were going to package 32bit and 64bit in the same box nowdays.
#16
Cracking Deal Order placed so pleased i canceled mine with amazon.

My daughters school was there so it counts for any children in Full time education.

Good find OP
#17
I can see this getting hot!
#18
fantastic deal, fantastic OS

if its anything like vista you may be able to use it as a stand alone install
#19
cracking price considering its the ultimate and good if you cant get the £30 for professional offer. not really sure why the average home user would get ultimate though, although its well worth getting it over the other versions for that price!

does anyone know if a clean install will work without having an xp/vista dvd and serial?

And is this deal the upgrade version or full?
#28

http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/studentoffer/

from here I just ordered mine.

All you need is a student email adderss - staff are eligible too. I've used my GF's work address cuz she works at a uni.

32 or 64 bit home or premium - if you want the premium though there is a tick box you have to tick to say you need to join domains at your uni then it lets you order the premium.

They also have office ultimate 2007 for £38.95

Whats difference between 32bit and 64 bit versions sorry for being thick here?

Whats difference between 32bit and 64 bit versions sorry for being thick here?

Most computers sold today have 64 bit processors. They can happily run 32 bit windows and software, but to get the most out of them you should use 64 bit. 64 bit windows can also recognise above 4gb of ram whereas 32bit cannot. Most software available isn't designed to take advantage of 64 bit and some people report problems getting drivers for certain hardware with 64 bit. You get both disks though so nothing stopping you trying out 64 bit first.

Anyone know if this would upgrade Windows 7 Premium?! Is there likely to be a work around to clean install without required OS?
#31
So if ive already ordered the 32 bit version ( there's a big chance that the 64 bit one will be in as well, as per one of the above post) Cheers matey anyway.
#32
Oh My Pc is a AMD 4800 with 4 Gigs Ram 8800 GTX so would this run 64 bit.
#33
I think I'll stick with my Professional pre-order from Microsoft...don't see much difference between that and this version except £30 difference and not much more in terms of software :)
#34
Yeah It would run Mansfield193. Would work fine with either better to use 64 bit if your planning on getting any more memory though.

Yeah I guess the main benefit for the average user is the bitlocker software which encrypts all your files with your login. Probably good for laptops where you don't want data to go astray. Only thing is if something happens that stops Windows booting up, then you probably won't be able to login which will make your files inaccessible. Also there is free software out there which achieves the same sort of effect, like TrueCrypt and FreeOTFE - and are probably better than Windows bitlocker anyway.

Cancelled order for pro from Amazon at £89 and took this, great buy I did check Dreamspark as I'm verified but only free server OS's

The 4800 is an AM2 or 939 CPU so it is definitely 64bit as are all cpus made in the last 3-4 years even the Atom is 64bit its safe to say if you have any of the following its 64bit.

AMD Sockets so that's any Athlons,Semprons,Phenoms or Phenom II and Opteron
754
939
AM2
AM2+
AM3

Intel Sockets. So that's pretty much any Pentium4 made in the last few years sitting in socket 775 Same as Celerons if they are Dual Core then they definitely are. Core2Duo and Core2Quad,Xeon and the new i7 and i5

Hey guys I'm a mac owner and I've lost all touch with windows software now so need some help!

My girlfriend is a student so she is eligible for this deal or the official Microsoft 30quid deal. Anyway what I wanna know is the difference between the versions. She's a basic user so home premium would be fine but is it Worth getting pro for same price or paying extra for this?

Thanks for any help.

Heat for the deal!!
#40
£30 deal requires just a .ac.uk e-mail address. I don't think this one needs any "proof" but they do ask for College or University details.

If she has .ac.uk e-mail I'd go for the £30 deal :thumbsup:
