Microsoft is currently offering a four-year subscription to Office 365 University together with a copy of Panda Internet Security 2013 for a mere £59.99. The license is valid on two computers, either PC or Mac, and offers the suite as a download rather than a boxed product, to cut down on costs.
So for roughly 2p per day, you can get the full version of Microsoft Office (that includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Access, Publisher and Outlook) as well as Panda Internet Security 2013 plus 60 minutes of Skype calls per month and 20GB of online storage.
All the applications will be continually updated over the duration of the subscription and the offer is valid until the end of the month.
As for the terms and conditions of the purchase, this academic offer is only valid to eligible students, faculty and staff members. It requires verification of eligibility prior to purchase and is subject to limitations as well.
Each eligible student, faculty, and staff can purchase a maximum of two Office 365 University products and can only activate a second Office 365 University product three years after the initial activation.
Still it remains a great offer especially if you plan to opt for a full Windows environment with Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox.
