This seems to be the cheapest deal around for Office 2010. Professional Plus is the top SKU with the following included:

Microsoft Excel 2010
Microsoft Outlook 2010 with Business Contact Manager
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
Microsoft Word 2010
Microsoft Access 2010
Microsoft InfoPath 2010
Microsoft Communicator
Microsoft Publisher 2010
Microsoft OneNote2010
Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010
Microsoft Office Web applications

Unlike some other offers you actually get the physical disk and product key posted out to you, not just a download.

The basement is for students to buy specially-priced low cost hardware and software. Parents, guardians and carers etc. can buy on behalf of students if for student home-use. Students must be enrolled in the UK or Northern Ireland, and shipping is limited to these areas.

Microsoft software doesn't come with a manual or box, it's CD-only. It comes in a nice CD sleeve though, and the product key is on the back.

Please be aware that you are only allowed to purchase up to two copies of any single Microsoft product, of the same edition, from our Basement site. Our prices are specifically for students and teachers so they're really competitive... Microsoft need to make sure that non-teachers, non-students and non-parents are not benefiting from this!

Good deal 2010 Professional Academic is £49.99 on the Ultimate steal website.

Great price and would they know if i tried to buy it and im not a student?

If so i can always get my mate to order it as she goes to uni.

Does anyone know how many licence keys, or computers this can be installed on?

Just checked, Microsoft office products can be installed on up to 2 computers.

What is the definition of a student, I have 2 daughters both at school, aged 11 and 9. Do they qualify? How do they check?

Just registered, yes they do, as long as the educational establishment is found when you register, their school was.

Seems an excellent buy.

Thanks to OP.

Don't know why they are charging so much for that. This is cheaper and has more programs! The old 'Ultimate Steal' was a better deal, £38.95 for Office 2007 Ultimate with free upgrade to 2010.

Nice find, £10 cheaper than software4students.

Currently got the Beta version installed which runs out end of October

If you installed that you would be able to activate it with the product key from this deal, for anyone that needs Office in a hurry,

Good find, I thought software4students was good (same deal as this, but about £10 more expensive).

Worth noting that the 2 licences are supposed to be for the student for whom the product is bought, so strictly speaking it's supposed to be 2 computers that the student will be using, i.e. a desktop and a laptop.

Hot deal

search for the Beta version, and you might get the extended version until October

Don't know why it's so important to have the box, just extra junk to gather dust, you can order it (as a download - the shock of it!!! :whistling: ) here for £19.80 with one license...

Sorry, but could someone provide a link as to where it says that this product can be installed on upto two computers? I checked the RM Basement website and the Microsoft website, but it doesn't say.

Thanks in advance,

That's the price to add classic menu's back like in 2003 to 2010. Not the office suite itself. Plus this RM version will be in OEM packaging.

By the way private schools are also included, not just state education establishments. I know, our searched for the 'local' private school out of intereste.

Got to the deal/the website. Click on FAQs at the top. Then number 5 under the 'About our software'.

But here is the text:

As indicated above, each piece of software bought can only be installed on one computer.

The exception is Microsoft. You can install Microsoft Office software on up to 2 computers. E.g. one could be a desktop and the other on a portable device like a netbook. Both should be for the exclusive use of the licence holder (the student!) However Operating Systems are onlyinstallable on a single machine due to Microsoft licensing regulations.

Don't bother for a couple of months yet. Got it here - buggy.

That doesn't actually get you Office, though, does it? Am I missing something?

That's an ad-on to give you the old MS Office menus.

Thanks for this - as much as I loath adding ££'s to Microsoft's coffers, their software is generally the widest used. It also doesn't confuse the kids when they use MS at school, and then end up having to try to use a compatible such as OpenOffice (even though it's good alternative) at home.

Sorry, but the Microsoft website says :-

60-Day evaluation expiration. This evaluation software will expire in 60 days after which it will deactivate and must be uninstalled before installing a purchased copy.

According to Microsoft it depends on what you purchase? It can be 1 or 3 machines

It depends on what you purchase—a Traditional Disc or Product Key Card. If you purchase a Traditional Disc retail license of Office Home and Student 2010, the retail license terms allows you to install, activate, and use Office Home and Student 2010 on up to three PCs in a single household.

If you purchase the Office Home and Student 2010 Product Key Card, you can only activate and use Home and Student on one PC or device. For more information on what type of license you have purchased and to obtain an overview of your licensing agreement, visit the Microsoft Software License Terms (MSLT) for Office 2010

This is taken from here:

Can I install Office Home and Student 2010 on more than one device?

Having just been reading the thread about the "Hallelujah" CDs that made me chuckle. Even God uses OpenOffice!

yes, because you are purchasing a traditional disc.

This is the Professional plus 2010 version, not the Home and Office version.
It is just sold for student use, it is not the student version, so don't get confused with the versions.

Yes it does - 2 computers

Not the same product at all, add-ins from a company in China!

Might be worth waiting to see if they (the University) have actually bothered to upgrade the campus systems to 2010 if you already have 2007 at home/on laptops. Also, at mine (Staffs) I could get various MS Office and development apps for free, as they have a licence with e-academy, though Word wasn't included. It's probably worth checking if your University offers something similar.

Is this the 32-bit or 64-bit version, or does it work for both? Can't see any indication of this anywhere.

Sorry if I am reading this wrong, isn't this just an add-on to make the 2010 interface look like 2003?

hot deal

Do you guys prefer this new version or the 2007 one? Just installed it a few days ago, maybe i need to give it a chance, but i felt happier with the 2007, so far.

2010 is so much better. In particular the real time pasting has saved SO MUCH time. It's ridiculous how the feature hasn't been present earlier. The time-saving implementations are the selling point of this version of office. The feature set is pretty much identical to 2007.

He is Irish, dont trust him j/k

No, the link he has pointed to isnt for the Office suite, it is just for the 2003 interface add on for that price, to use with your existing 2010 Office suite.

It helps those that are familiar with 2003 office and want to keep things similar.

Heat added - getting new laptop in a few weeks so just ordered this as well - nice 1

I get mine for free because I use Ubuntu

Great price. Open office is a decent alternative, but still a fair few years behind imo in terms of features and ease of use.

Are you allowed to use this after graduation? [Not, 'Do you think they'll know', but strictly, legally]
