Microsoft Office 2007 for Only $79.94? Can it Be Possible?

Yes, it can be. As of this posting, on 11-20-08, you can get Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student OEM (part number 79G-00007-OEM) for only $79.94!

Not quite what you need? Well, we offer a fulle range of Microsoft Office Home, Academic, Professional and Small Business products in multiple configurations, and all at great prices.

Office 2007, or Office 2003, or Office XP 2002, or Office 2000, or Microsoft Works, or even Office 2008, we've got it all.

Planning on buying an Apple Mactinosh, or have you recently bought one? That sharp Macbook Air, for instance, or a new Macbook Pro? Or maybe you've gotten yourself a fancy new Mac Pro 8-core Superfast Multiprocessing Behemoths? Boy, I'd sure like one of those. Hint, hint. Would make a much more powerful server for work and getting things done and being productive and so on. Hint, hint.

Anyway, if you've done that, I'm sure you know you can run Windows on your Mac. All you need is the included Bootcamp or Parallels (which is just $79.99 from the maker, maybe cheaper if you shop around), and . . . a copy of the Windows operating system.

After spending $3000 bucks on that new Mac tower and $80 for parallels, now you gotta spend $300 on brand new copy of Windows, too? Well, not so fast, buckaroo.

We've got Windows Vista Business 32-bit OEM for just $139.95. But, even better, avoid any hassles you might associate with Windows Vista (it's not that bad, seriously, but I must confess I still run XP on my work machine, and still have a soft spot in my heart for the venerable Windows 2000, which we have for $89.95 OEM or $159.95 Pro full, BTW). But XP is a little lighter, largely bulletproof with all the service pack updates (though those service packs are important, let me tell you) and is compatible with almost any program you want to use Windows to run.

The best news? Get Windows XP Home Edition with SP3 (so you don't have to spend hours downloading all the XP service packs) for only $89.95. Then, run your favorite Windows apps in XP, right on your Mac. Pretty cool, huh?

Or, get Windows 95 for $17.49. And then buy Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. And why?

With Parallels, you could make virtual multiple machines on a single Mac and easily run Mac OS X, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, and some other flavor of Windows or Windows Server on your Apple Desktop, and run critical custom software, play Windows-only games, or do whatever it is you need a particular version of Windows to do for you. And it's fast.

Gonna skip all that and wait for Windows Seven? Well, here is a Windows Seven demo real. Or there would be, if the video hadn't apparently been pulled since I read this article on multitouch in Windows 7. Ah, well.
