HI,

I've been asked this many times, so I thought I would blog on it.  Microsoft offers great discounts for people in education (beyond those who work in education).  The best options are:

For university students:

For any age group in education - Office 2007 for around £39- £52 depending on which edition (Standard to Enterprise) and Windows 7 upgrades for £40-56 depending on the edition

 

There are obviously some conditions you have to meet to qualify to use these products and each site has information about them.  If you are in full time education or a parent of someone who is then you likely qualify.  To learn more about Microsoft and education in the UK, have a look at http://www.microsoft.com/uk/education/default.aspx.  You will notice that both the organisations I linked above are linked on the Microsoft page, but I have experience with the above two.

 

Thanks

David

David, I bought Office Enterprise 2007 from SOftware for students. I managed to load it on my Acer laptop but cannot do it on my Acer desktop (Aspire X3200). Tried to run from disk and downloading from MS website but installation stops around 70% down the line. I have uninstalled all bits of preloaded MS office. I have the complete software among my program files. Is there now a way I can put the product key in a file and make it start?

mz,

Try uninstalling all office items from your laptop and then try re-installing Office 2007.

Thanks

David
