Collegians Get Big Discount for Microsoft Office and Vista

Software giant woos the young crowd with discounts that can exceed 90 percent.


This alone is almost worth going back to school. Microsoft has renewed its offer of low-priced, high-end versions of Office and Vista for college students. We're talking a mere $60 for Office Ultimate or a cool 90 percent off the asking price. The Vista Ultimate upgrade goes for $65, which is a smaller but still impressive discount of about 70 percent.

All you need is a functioning E-mail address that ends in the university-owned ".edu." For all of you alumni who still use your college addresses, Microsoft says you must be currently enrolled for at least a half-credit. It wants you to give proof if asked.

The discount alone could pay for that Landscape Architecture 101 class that you've always wanted to take.
