    I'm still using Office 97. Can't see why I'd want to upgrade. It does everything I need it to.

    I have YET to find a full version (as in, not just an upgrade one) for Windows XP Professional.

    I know there is an academic version for $178 at Co-Op bookshop (can't use the Co-Op card for software OS though)... would be really interested in a Full Academic Version, NOT upgrade only.

    If someone can get a price for that, it'd be very appreciated (and a link would be nice!). Co-Op as far as I know don't have it on their database.

    There is no difference in functionality between Microsoft's academic and full price products. Other vendors often restrict academic version (eg Autodesk's AutoCAD).

    I don't think you would have a problem purchasing two academic copies of the same program. Why not send an email to Microsoft Australia to be sure?

    What do you need to have to purchase the Academic XP Pro?
    Student Card?

    I work at a computer store and we sell Academic microsoft products. As far as I can tell regarding the Office and Windows packages there same as the retail...

    We also take a photocopy of the students ID and sent it of to microsoft.

    I believe there is a limit to one purchase, stops people trying to sell them off to other people.

    Also apparently registered non-profit organisations can also purchase at academic prices.


    Here is all the information you guys need:
