What is OLP pricing ?

Gee $849 Aussie for Office with Access.
That's a lot of money for a small guy like me.
I'll have to see if I can get an Academic version !

OLP is MS's Open License Programme, which is a licensing model that lets you deploy and then re-deploy (for example) an Office installation as many times as you like; the Volume License Key you use to license the app isn't tied to any one specific machine.

That's probably an over-simplification, but it gives you the gist.

That's about on par with Office 2007 pricing, as expected. Office 2007 Pro was about $1149 on release here at major retailers (though I've seen it for more like $899 at e-tailers).

If you were expected major drops in price level for the 2010 release, you were dreaming :P

I'm certainly not - especially when my Microsoft reseller is merrily trying to flog Office 2007 off at reduced pricing! :rolleyes:

2007. The MS quoted is RRP NZD$1,521.90 ;)

The academic versions are pretty good if you qualify, $80 and you download it, a surcharge if you want a DVD sent to you, and you also get a free upgrade to 2010.

Interesting they say 25 max 2007 per student and max 5 upgrades to 2010.

They have gone cheaper over time, I remembered when I paid ~$300 for a older version.
Most people don't need the latest version, they may only use 2% of all the features ..

But you do get a free upgrade to the 2010 version with them don't you?

The academic version you do. The main one?

But you do get a free upgrade to the 2010 version with them don't you? A few facts:


If you buy Office 2007 any time between March 5 and September 30 of this year, you automatically qualify for a free upgrade to Office 2010 when it's released.

the "free" Office 2010 upgrade will only be free as a download. To get a disc, you'll have to pay a media fee. To get either, you'll have to give them your already activated Office 2007 Product Key and info from your dated sales receipt. Lose the receipt and you're SOL.

once you activate the Office 2010 upgrade, your 2007 key will be deactivated and unavailable for additional installs. If you installed that copy of Office 2007 on multiple machines, those Office installs will lose their activation and no longer be considered "Genuine"

If you buy but don't install Office 2007, you'll also be SOL until that product key is activated. Meaning you can't just buy a copy and sit it on the shelf.

This is probably a daft question, but if you want to put it on your lappy as well as the desktop....?

This is probably a daft question, but if you want to put it on your lappy as well as the desktop....? No t a daft question -- From a MS forum (http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.office.misc&tid=442fa372-5ada-424b-b41c-94585134fa05&cat=en_US_24f872ec-a5b6-4cc1-925d-0364c03e6da6&lang=en&cr=US&sloc=&p=1) asking that exact question.

If you are a student or work at a uni, you can get the full version for just $80. http://www.microsoft.com/nz/digitallife/software/microsoft_office_ultimate_steal.mspx

Re the upgrade thing, if you buy Office 2007 Small Business, because there is no SBE in 2010, they upgrade you to pro. Cheap way to buy it.

Why would they upgrade you to Pro instead of Home & Business Edition?

Because 2010 Pro is the closest match to 2007 SBE, as a result of consolidating the 6 or so editions in to 3.
Home & Student 2007 -> Home & Student 2010
Basic or Standard 2007 -> Home & Business 2010
Small Business, Pro, or Ultimate 2007 -> Pro 2010
Individual Product 2007 -> Individual Product 2010

When I look at the pricing at Lapshop I find the following:

The license
gives the student or faculty staff member the right to install the product on one computer.

You are limited to ordering only 1 of this program.

Are the conditions different because it is the educational/academic version? And are there other places I can look for educational/academic pricing?

For academic isn't that priced from MS so it won't be lower than $80.
You have to download it after using your student email address.
If you want a media CD/DVD that's an extra $25.
I think there is just one version for academic. It's the same for teachers or students.

Back in 2000 I know the academic version allowed you 2 copies, a PC and lappie, seems not now.

At 2000 it was $300 bucks I think. You could buy 2x $80 :p that's if you are allowed. Correction: not allowed. One edition per student.
