Students get Microsoft deal of the day

Posted by Brier Dudley

There's a nice opportunity for college students to benefit from Microsoft's competition with Google for their attention.

Microsoft just announced a promotion - "The Ultimate Steal" -- making Office Ultimate 2007 available to students for $59.95 from Sept. 12 until April 30.

The suite lists for $679 and includes the following applications:

Access 2007
Accounting Express 2007
Excel 2007
InfoPath 2007
Groove 2007
OneNote 2007
Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager
PowerPoint 2007
Publisher 2007
Word 2007

To be eligible, college student must hold a valid e-mail address at an educational institution and be actively enrolled at the time of purchase, a spokeswoman said.

You might come out ahead if you registered at a community college just to get the software deal, not to mention the learning.
