yeah that's useful if you work for a company with an enterprise license select aggreement
Edited by: "wyabcp" 11th Jun 2011

Offer page states :
"***Please note that changing hardware may result in a loss of license. Licenses are non-transferrable. "

With machines breaking down / replaced frequently, the above is VERY BAD.

Is this something new? I realise you can only have 2 installs with an MS license before it stops auto-activation, but I assumed you can call up to get a new activation code. Has there been a change in policy or is above just because this is a student license ?

Yes there are some instances when you must have MS Office (like advanced Excel macros) but in most instances LibreOffice (formerly OpenOffice) provides a near 100% compatability for free. Free is especially good if you are a student. Just download and try. If LibreOffice doesn't do it for you then this is good value. At least you will know if you really need to buy it.

"Pro Plus", so this is the hard core developer long hours version?

yes open/libre office is great - but if students are being taught by or sharing information with MS Office users then this is a sensible choice. Open/Libre Office is largely compatible, but there are some formatting issues - particularly with the docx and xlsx formats (Office 2007 versions onwards). BTW these deals allow installation on 2 machines - by default a PC and laptop belonging to the same user, so decent value I think.

Not knocking Libre Office in any way, I use it myself, but for this money on 2 machines - with guaranteed compatibility - good deal - always available but always worth reminding - also the license doesn't expire (the work deal license typically does when you leave that company)

The only set back is that you must have an academic email address (.ac or .sch), so is only useful for students and not as a general deal for the public.

Nope not this one - you just need to enter name and school of a qualifying student - think the one you are referring to is the "ultimate steal" offer - only open to university or equivalent students. This one is for any student (at any level) or their families - so most people will/can qualify.........

Who can buy software at Software4Students?

Primary and Secondary students: All currently registered students of primary and second level schools in the UK

University and college students: All currently registered students of universities and colleges in the UK

Parents, grandparents and guardians: If you are a parent or guardian or have a grandson or granddaughter for whom you would like to license the software, then you can purchase the software. The main requirement to purchase is that the end user licensee must be a student or be a faculty member in one of our listed educational institutions.

Got a copy for my daughter a couple of months ago, never thought a kid would have a money saving benefit

Just out of interest. I purchased an upgrade copy of 64bit Win7 from this site and clean installed and activated with no hitches at all. Massive bargain.

I'm probably going to upgrade from Office 2007 with this.

Those proposing Open Office or whatever it is now called is a viable alternative truly need to grow up. It is like claiming a Reliant Robin 3 wheel Del Boy van is a viable alternative to a decent car.

Its been this price since last year, as i purchased a copy when the beta trial ran out

Bought this at Xmas for my daughter for her new laptop, you can't beat it, download the files install it with the key job done.

I got this from them, and paid a little extra for the physical discs.

Mine came with two licenses so had it on two laptops for under £40.

Although I am a student, they didn't actually check if I was, so in theory non students should be fine to do this.

To be fair, I think this is a very sensible price for this software anyway.

Heat added

This costs £10+vat for city college students 32 and 64 bit, along with Microsoft office 2011 for mac, windows 2007 Pro and Ultimate 32-64bit, all at the same price. Exclusively for City College students.

Just purchased the CD copy, it has a £2 transaction charge, still good value though:

Product Cost : £31.58
Tax (VAT 20%) : £6.32
Transaction Charge : £1.95
Total : £39.85

It is excellent value, I bought this and W7 pro last year from S4S, quick service and office can be installed on any 2 pc's that you own. Hot.

This is a good price but as Phil has identified, do check other sources first e.g. schools, colleges & employers. I got a copy from my local authority employer for £8.99

Open Office.org = free

Of course it's not spam!
It's a genuine decent offer, many of us have seen it before but there are always new arrivals here who have not and to them it is a useful piece of info.

It's not two licenes it's a licence that can be installed on two machine, as long as they are primarily used by the person who this was bought for.

So you can have it on the students Desktop and Laptop, it'a NOT for putting on two laptops used by two different people.

I know MS will never check, but if your going to break the terms of the agreement you may as well save your money and pirate it anyway...

If you need an office try Libre office first, it's not MS Office, but it does most of the things office does and for most people it's a great subsitute.

So the administrators should have a system in place to automatically repost old hot deals - yet they don't. Have you asked yourself why not?

Instead they provide a search button on the assumption that anyone who has the ability to sign up to the site has the ability to use the search facilities they provide.

If not, and dont know why they signed up to the site, then they're not going to be capable of buying the product nevermind use it.

Maybe these forever-available deals should have their own section along with tinned tomatoes, scampi fries and amazon watch deals.

Spam = cold. Fact.

No, Howardino = Troll. Fact.


Bought this yesterday, after realising it's simply infeasible to use MS Office 2003 forever. Plus I needed to practice on Excel for job interview next week. I'm very impressed so far, for the price and how fast/easy it was to download and install.

I have a question though, say if I restored my laptop to factory setting one day, would I still be able to use my activation code to install MS Office or would they count that as a separate computer?

I like the irony in this especially since it's a student deal. Pro Plus edition very apt Even better if there was a free pack of these in the box >

Is it massively different to Office 2003? I am very comfortable with that so a bit wary of changing to something that is vastly different. Can any comment on the new versions usability? cheers

To be honest MS Office is way over-specified for 90% of the people who use it (me included) - so if you don't need to upgrade then I wouldn't - or at least take up the free trial before you install.

There are free compatibility packs you can download to allow you to read the 2007/2010 file formats (e.g. doxc and xlsx) in 2003, so there's not much to be gained for typical users in my opinion.

On the difference between versions, a lot of people that I know found 2007 uncomfortable to use as the ribbon interface was a real departure from 2003. Some people loved it though. 2010 (to me) seems to have a bit more resemblence to the "traditional" menu structure.

If you need a legitimate MS version of this software then this is a great deal - if you are already catered for with an earlier MS version or a free alternative then I wouldn't bother.

I found 2007 to be intensely annoying, the ribbon interface is ludicrous, and often on completely the wrong section you require. Office 2010 I find to be very slow, a lot slower on my Core i3 laptop than 2007 is for example. Since you already have 2003 I don't see a lot of benefit in changing. You could also try a free Office suite such as OpenOffice, which is very feature rich, you can find links to more free Office suites at techsupportalert. If you don't have MS Office at al then you could try 2010, I still think free is worth trying first though, if you don't like it you haven't lost anything except a little time.

This is good but it's always this price on software4students, it has been for half a year now and has been on hot deals more than twice!

Activation key unavailable contact customer support.

That's a blow. I paid £40 for nothing? I contacted them, they better refund or give me the key.
