    I think it's only for students (and only online for those with ac.uk address).

    Actually while the MS page says "Students only", the terms are more specific, it does include faculty staff (with restrictions). Seems to be higher education though.

    If you have Schools Agreement, your staff can obtain a copy of MS Office 2010 Pro for 9.95 as a digital download via the Software Assurance you get with Schools Agreement.

    Students could just use RM's The Basement - The Basement

    It's been running for a while, you can sign up as an affiliate for your school/uni and get a massive 50p per sale!

    Things on offer are :

    Office 2010 Pro 49.99
    Windows 7 Pro (Upgrade) 30
    Office Language Pack 9.95

    http://student.theultimatesteal.co.uk/z/11/CD20/ [this is my uni's affiliate link] which redirects you to the main MS link of http://www.microsoft.com/student/off...b/default.aspx

    The disadvantage with the example above is that unlike these where you buy a perpetual licence, the Software Assurance version can easily mean you could end up with an unlicenced copy if your Schools Agreement lapses (look at what happened with the NHS deal recently)

    Just looking at the cheapest way of getting Windows 7 for my daughter, she is a student with a valid academic email address, the problem being you get an email link, but at the 30 offer screen, there are only options to choose 64 or 32 bit disc which adds on an extra 9 quid, doesn't seem to be an option just to download the iso this way and get key directly from microsoft.

    The other option I have looked at are downloading a iso file directly like this (seems like digital river are an authorised agent)

    Digital River: http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent..../X15-65733.iso

    and buying the key from one of the sites online that claims to be able to sell keys via email, without discs if you have your own media for around 23 quid, but something tells me that this seems too good to be true, any thoughts?

    Looks a good price, 38.95 inc but including vat and delivery though, so still a bit cheaper than the main microsoft outlet,

    Both Software4Students and RM's Basement are offering Office 2010 Pro Plus at just under 39 for students. It seems to good to be true!

    I'm trying to work out what the difference between 'Pro plus' and 'Professional'... I keep coming across things saying it's in Beta

    I've used Software4Students several times, and they're very good - you can get software either via a download or they will send the media out to you..

    They are also very good when there are problems, so I'm happy to recommend them..
