Does 5 users mean it can be installed on 5 laptops?

Yes

Anyone know what are the ongoing annual license charges per user after the first year has expired ?

You pay the going rate at the time of purchase (£79.99). I've been offered no discounted renewal rate.

I'm renewing this month and this is the best price so far, so I'm buying...

Did you know that with a free microsoft account such as a @live.co.uk email you get 7GB online storage with skydrive which allows you to create word, excel and powerpoint documents.

Thanks sponge. So ongoing £59 per annum for five users ?

This is the single user - i.e. 1 office 365 mailbox - but can be installed on 5 devices - pc/tablet/laptop

It says five users in the title ?

I'd use OpenOffice, it's free and does everything I've ever needed for a word processor or spreadsheet application, plus the usual other bits. Anyone can get a freebie Skydrive/DropBox/Google Drive, etc.

And it isn't going to ask you for another pile of money in twelve months, on pain of stopping being able to edit your documents, or be a backdoor method of making you upgrade your OS either. Loathe them or loathe them, both Vista and Windows 8 are still supposed to be supported for several more years.

I wonder what the competition authorities have to say about the strange insistence that you have a Skype account too.

Seems cheap for the first year, but unless you plan to use An alternative product in the future you're stuck paying a renewal fee every year

So anyone know what happen if you don't renew?

Cold renewal fee! come on you have bought the product what a con, what would change each year to justify this?

Greedy Microsoft again

Microsoft are currently pushing the 360 product as it's a guaranteed income stream for them, however unlike Adobe that how have gone for the lease only model (who make MS look like ammeters in the software leasing rip off category) MS are still selling the standalone product,

Office 2013 Home is currently £110 on their website (cheaper elsewhere) so if you really need MS office and aren't bothered about updates, it's much more cost effective to buy the product outright. Consider if MS continue with their old release strategy of a new version every 3-4 years then you're looking at around £220 over 3 years £59.99 original price then 2 x annual renewal at £79.99

Definitely not a hot deal for me.

My kids schools have all adopted 365 so this is what they learn on. Yes I hate the 365 lease idea something anti virus software has done for years. The fact they love the skydrive after several lost and washed usb sticks. And all the other added features makes it a learning tool.

Bearing in mind that an Outlook.com email address, Office Web Apps and Sky Drive are all free, unless you need the additional Office365 capabilities you might be able to manage with the free stuff

ONE year ?????????????????

Can anyone recommend free software that does spreadsheets for a Macbook Pro?

Students office for free!! Dreamspark!

Ugh, I hate all this subscription nonsense. Microsoft will probably bring out a version of Windows monthly/annually too... Instead of paying £25 when it comes out you can pay £6 a month FOREVER. What a bargain that would be!

What like Xbox Live and PS Plus ? (People who are not me seem quite happy with those arrangements).

Mmmm, that sounds like a line from a Microsoft advertisement! Kids need to learn how to use, program and understand computers from a more basic level, something that I believe is no longer possible using Microsoft operating systems and software. Once that's done, on a Mac/Linux/etc machine, then using any software on any platform, including Microsoft products, becomes childs play for them.

I think people are being brainwashed into thinking that this model for software licences is an acceptable life expense. It's not and it's not a hot deal. UK Life expectancy = 80 years, therefore it's £59.99 + (79 x £79.99) + 40% overall inflation over those years = £8,930.88 or £1,786.176 per person per life!

Hot from me. Mine is up for renewal next month so saved a few quid over what Amazon were planning on charging me

LibreOffice is a more up to date fork of OpenOffice, therefore I'd use that one if trying a free Office program >

Google Drive?

Looks like a 3 user perpetual license for Office 2010 Home and Student goes for about £100. Much better investment to go for that. (Even if you need 6 users still better off that way. Paid for in three years).

If you need Outlook whoever needs you to have it should be paying for it.

Google Drive?


thanks.. i'll have a look at that.. I don't like the pirated stuff

Possibly Mavericks does allow you to update iWork 09 trial to full version, whether this is an oversight from Apple or deliberate I don't know, however they haven't done anything to block this loophole. In fact it appears to be genuine and deliberate >

If anyone has any reason to believe otherwise then I'll remove this post.

These license keys do stack. So if you think this is a good price, buy two packs and apply them both to the same Microsoft account. It will automatically extend the subscription by another year (the expiry date is shown at the bottom of the licensing page, while you are logged into your account at office.com).

Once your subscription expires the applications will switch to read only mode. You will still be able to "view" existing files, but not create new ones.

As a free alternative there is also a reduced functionality version of Word/Excel 2010: linky

I get three new games every month with PS+, what do I get each month with Office? Nothing apart from a few minor updates that hardly make any difference to my experience.

You are right, apparently HotUKDeals is about ripping off consumers according to this deal! ;-)

I think this may have been lost in the sprit of hukd, if you want office 365 this is a cheap deal! If you don't you don't have to buy it. As for the learning tool comment. I want to give my kids the best chance so getting them the same software they learn on in school and college I feel gives them a head start.
