This was just too good a deal not to let y’all know about. Microsoft is making MS Office 2007 Ultimate Edition available to any and all university students for $60. That’s sixty, not six hundred. Even the educational price for this package is usually over $200. You just need a .edu email address andyou have to be enrolled in at least 0.5 credits worth of college classes.
Office 2007 Ultimate includes:
- Access™ 2007
- Accounting Express 2007
- Excel® 2007
- InfoPath® 2007
- Groove 2007
- OneNote® 2007
- Outlook® 2007 with Business Contact Manager*(see Obtaining Software below)
- PowerPoint® 2007
- Publisher 2007
- Word 2007
I don’t even know what half of those programs do, but they still sound pretty cool. More info at http://www.theultimatesteal.com (yes, this is an official Microsoft website, despite the funky url)
Also, they say “Office 2007,” not “Office 2008,” which probably means it’s a Windows-only thang, at least for now. Definitely check it out if you’ve been wanting to get office, but you haven’t wanted to shell out the $239 it would otherwise cost you as a student.
Thanks to Neal at the Computer Connection for the hot tip! (also, thanks to Neal for showing me the new Macbook Air. Day-am! That thing is thin! Go check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.)
