Hi again, thanks for these answers.
I have another Office question I hope someone could answer, and thought this might be better than making a whole new thread
So I haven't had time yet to get Office, but was still looking into the different versions, as well as debating between getting brand-spankin'-new 2010 or looking for the tried-and-tested assurance of 2007.
I found I can get a student discount on getting an academic version of 2010 Professional at a much better rate than either brand new Home & Student 2010 or even 2007. I've tried looking into if it's possible to install Professional Academic on more than one computer (three in this case), but haven't found anything. But I as well haven't found anything saying that versions like this *can't* be installed on three computers.
I'm not very Office savvy, so this could very well be another dumb question, but I want to be able to get a good deal on Office before heading back to school, and if I can get this Professional Academic version at a good price, and be able to install it on my mum and sister's computers as well, then it seems like the best buy. Or does Microsoft lock it so once it's installed, it can't be used?
When my hard drive crashed, which had Windows 7 from the disc installed, I bought a new hard drive and installed 7 using the same disc with no problem; there was nothing popping up saying that I had already installed with this disc of 7 or anything.
So if anyone could answer this, it would be much appreciated, and any answer would help me decide on Office here and now
