Hi, hope you're all doing fine?

Um, I need help buying Office 2007. Well, not actually buying as in the parting-of-the-money, but understanding whether or not I'm getting a good deal and know what I'm buying is what I want.

I recently bought a new laptop, which didn't come with any Office software at all. Rather than buying it straight away, I decided I'd wait till my favourite website for software started selling Office 2007. It's a site called StudentOptions.com which offers massive discounts for students. It's all legal too, Microsoft's UK Education site link to it and it's by Digital River which is the company that do the AnyTime Upgrade thing in Vista (I think?).

On the site they only have two versions of Office available, Professional Plus and Enterprise. I want the Professional Plus version which costs £75. I think this is a good deal, because normally Office costs £300-odd. But, when I searched it on Froogle Google Product Search I found prices at £25. Am I being ripped off? How much is Professional Plus supposed to cost?

Any help would be much appreciated. (I may not be that quick at replying, sorry.)

....well...alot of the ones on "frugle" look like they're just the media...i.e. the cds themselves...NOT the actual license...any of them that say license with them...are much more expensive than the £25 ones....get the one from the place you usually get y our stuff
