I'm looking to buy Microsoft Office XP (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) for the family PC. Looking at Amazon.co.uk, I can pay £330 or £85 for the version for students and teachers. The only criteria for this reduced price seems to be that I'm buying it for use for a full time Student or Teacher. Given that I have two boys in full time education who certainly will be using it, this is not a problem. However, I wonder if there are any "gotchas" here? Is there any difference between the ordinary £330 version and the cheaper £85 version? Cut down functionality? Does anyone have any experience of this?
And precisely where would you download Office XP from? On second thoughts, dont answer that as it would obviously be pirate and therefore your post should be ignored or even removed.
As Djohn states, Office XP for students and Teachers is the full unadulterated version (as is windows XP Pro) with four full programs, not cutdowns.
the only thing I would say is DONT BUY IT YET!!!
In just over a weeks time, Microsft will be releasing Office 2003 which is the latest incarnation of the office suite. It has many improvements over XP and will also be available in Student & Teacher format (about £120).
I have yet to see it listed on Amazon but would thnk that click here would stock it when released.
