Dealzmodo: 91% Off Microsoft Office Ultimate

Illustration for article titled Dealzmodo: 91% Off Microsoft Office Ultimate

Here's how you take money from Microsoft's pockets and put it into your own. First, you need to want to buy Microsoft Office Ultimate. Second, you need a .edu email address. It doesn't matter that you graduated in 1994 and the last time you stepped foot in a classroom was 1993, all you need is an .edu address. That'll cut down the atrocious $680 price tag to a more manageable $60. You have until May 16, a week from now. After that you'll have to go back to BitTorrenting it like you always do.

@quikboy: How exactly does OpenOffice suck? If you're a student or just need a well-rounded word processing suite to get your work done, what does OpenOffice lack that would make MS Office the superior option? As a user of Office myself, I can attest to it being a quality product, but for my own purposes, it is most definitely not worth even half the coin it generally asks for.

That said, I love my copy of iWork '08 =P
