The Ultimate Steal

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.)
