If you are a student at a reputable uni, you can purchase msoffice for around £10 on an official ms cd. generally this can be done from your uni merchandise shop.

Just a quick note :-

Microsoft Office 2007 Standard is available from Software4Students @ £40.94 for download or DVD versions. This includes a '"free" upgrade to Microsoft Office 2010 Pro Plus @ £5 for a download, or £8 for DVD's.

Obviously this can work out slightly cheaper, esp. if you go for the download of Office 2010 Pro Plus. However I'm not sure if the upgrade download @ £5 is available yet, can anyone confirm?

Go for the deal I've posted above if you require Office 2010 right now.

Or you could download open office free.

Personally I think this is a great deal, Office 2010 on 3 computers without the hassle of installing 2007 then upgrading! I prefer to have a nice clean install rather than upgrading anyway and for that reason would pay a bit more.

Have some heat and rep! :thumbsup:

2 computers right, not 3?

I have used Software4Students in the past and they are not the quickest of companies for sending items out. But not too deal.

How exactly does this work? I've read the FAQ and know I need to be a student, I'm a student right now, but won't be after June. What happens then?

Once my toddler is at school I can presumably get this. While at preschool, does this option not apply?

it would seem that you don't even need to prove you're a student.... I might have to give this ago as my uncle needs a copy of windows 7 Professional Upgrade Edition and this is extremely cheap!

Same here, can't fault them

Surely 'the ultimate steal' is a better deal for those in academic institutions at £10 less? You get the 2007 version now and the 2010 version when it becomes available.

Assuming you can't get that for some reason, and the free OpenOffice type programs aren't suitable for you (they're not for me), this is a reasonable deal.

If you buy this and do not meet the terms of the licensing concerning being a student or a guardian of a student, you are pirating a very expensive way.

Ordered my win 7 and it took over a month to be delivered, so I can fault their service, shocking communications too.

They are cheap but dont rely on the disc arriving quickly or sometimes at all

Open Office

Does open office have a "version" of Outlook that syncs with itunes for iphone users wishing to sync calendars?

Didn't think so.

Open office is a great free app, but it is limited and make no mistakes about that. Try some conditional formatting in their spreadsheet package, or editing some of the vb script in a "word" macro....

For £50 if you qualify this is a TOP deal.

but you dont have the hassle of messing around with fake keys and those sorts of programs.

for £40/£50 you save some hassle.

I don't see it that way. I just feel we are exploiting a loophole to buy software that is way to expensive for the masses, so Microsoft allow it to be reduced to people who need it, but haven't got the money.
I think in a way they admit this software is to expensive, but they make so much money out of businesses that they would never lower the price.
How much would this sell at retail? out of curiosity.

Valid points but I suspect that they are not so likely to be valid for the majority of the people who want/need to use an email client, a wordprocessor or a spreadsheet.

I would suggest that the only reason that most people have any use at all for MS Office is that it is the default office suite for most organisations. If folks only ever used this sort of stuff at home, Open Office and its like would be the products of choice.[/SIZE]

Isn't this a digital download?

It can be either download or sent to the customer on disc. Personally, I'd go for the disc - saves a lot of hours downloading and easy to store if needed in future. I've used the company quite a few times and have never had any problems. However, no firm is perfect so unfortunately a couple of people posting earlier seem to have been unlucky.

I bought this earlier, a great price, and downloaded in about 40 minutes. Happy with it, nice to have a 64-bit version, appears to be super quick on my system.

Don't actually think it is released until next month so getting it earlier and a lot cheaper than the highstreet can only be good

I don't promote software piracy but does anyone actually pay for software these days apart from buisness? I mean at retail\download stores? I pay for the odd bit of very specific stuff you can't get in the shop that's supported with regular updates but just can't fathom people going to the end of the world for cheap software in this way when you might as well just download it for free. I mean if it was legitimately being sold for 1p you'd buy it right?

Bit hypocritical...(just exploring theories here...I'm prolly mad)

Good deal mind heat added.

I've seen job descriptions for being fluent in using ms office software explictly, it's better off for students to be using the standard. I'm not saying open office is not capable.

Also to the person about piracy yes you are right I would not pay full whack for office or windows etc it's too much to pay and I would either pirate or do without, but since ms have made peace with it especially with students I have paid for my windows and office. Comes to under £90? Or so for Windows 7 pro and office 2010 can't complain.

Also I would not bother with getting the disc unless they are going to send you the 2010 one when it comes out, no point in getting a 2007 disc.

The kind of people who write those job descriptions are probably the kind who spend 5 minutes using the space bar trying to centre a paragraph of text - you know who I mean. Bloody yuppies :-D

Got it and not much different, all they have done is move things around.

One of my previous contracts was with MS licensing in particular with students. It doesn't matter if you see it as "less wrong", the license is black in write, yay or nay, right or wrong. The point I was making is that if you are going to pirate, this is an expensive way, and regardless of the perceived morally "right" reasons, the license and the law is not on your side.

Personally, I find these ms office or windows deals tedious and never particularly good. The majority of the country is covered by other cheaper licenses and schemes like this one cater for the small minority rather than the majority.

If you are a uni student, you can essentially get ms software (including office) for around $10. If you are in a high school or a uni college , you can get everything (bar office apps) for free under the msdnaa - pressure the school to drop the £500 (if that even these days) to buy in to the scheme. If you work for the government or a large company, you can get it for £10 under the work from home scheme. If you are on the benefit you can get things sorted that way. The list goes on..

The difficulty is that generally, the IT department doesn't know their stuff and find it easier to just simply say "no we don't support that".

I feel MS is desperate about Office now.
The stats show most of normal users are changing to open office

But would like to have Windows 7 to student price

I have tried open office on my dads new laptop but had real issues with compatability with old ms word files. As I am no expert with PC's I have no option but to get ms office applications, unless someone can show me an idiot guide that I can understand for open office and my 73 year old dad can use it with ease? :?

I have NEVER come across anyone that has ever bought a legitimate copy of MS Office. :w00t:
