Windows 7: Is This Too Good to Be True?

Is This Too Good to Be True?

I guess I already know the answer, but check this out for me. It is MS Office Pro 2013 for $109. The site says they are an Authorized Microsoft Partner, I kind of doubt that since they are selling software for about 30% of the MS price. I could not find anything bad about the site and they say they guarantee Customer Satisfaction.
Is this a Deal or not?

No telling but it is a home and student version so that is the cheapest one not sure I would trust the site

Not sure but here's what I could find although this information should not be taken as fact:

Ripoff Report | Softwareempire Complaint Review Internet: 1232239

Also there are not any seach results that I could find where trusted sites provide any links to that website.

What I saw on that page is that the $109.99 product is the Professional version for only one computer, may be an OEM version as usually a Retail version can be installed on a workstation and a portable device in charge of the same person.

I appreciate the info on that guys. The Rip Off Report that Callender listed is bad news. I think I will stay away from it. I really want to get a new Office Suite, as my Office 2003 is pretty old. I guess I will just have to save my pennies. I probably will have enough by the time Office 2020 comes out. Thanks for the help.

If you need the Microsoft product check out Office 365, it's subscription based and the software/first year can be had for less than $100, then so much a month after that. If wanting something compatible look at the free LibreOffice, just doesn't have an E-Mail Client like Microsoft Outlook, I have it on my computers even those with Microsoft Office.

I wouldn't worry about how old office 2003 is
It's still vastly used
Hell I still use 2003 compatibility doc files in office 2007

If it works is all that matters

I don't believe the home and student version has ever came with outlook included.
Ride it till it drops is my view these office suites cost a arm and leg I believe office 2007 small business went it was released was close to 450.us
Of course it can be installed of several computers at the same time = and it is

Thrash, you just confirmed what I have thought. I like 2003 better than 2013 that I have at work. It is more colorful. What the hey, like you say, ride it till it drops.

Unless you plan on using most of the features of the new office version all it is/ is bloat
I personally don't collaborate/ share..... with people my proposals/ Invoices are nonnegotiable = the price is the price take it or leave it.
Sure I'll drop an item or add an item but that's about as far as it goes.
Sure don't need office 365 for that
