The Definitive MS Office 2011 Mac Version For Students
Best UK price doesn't compare if you buy Mac software online
The whole point of the Software4Students program is to provide full version software at academic prices of up to 80-90% discount.
Therefore, the definitive version of MS Office 2011 for Mac as far as UK students is concerned is not the "Home and Student Edition".
Available on the high street and from other online stores, the "Home and Student Edition" does not include Outlook 2011.
Essentially it's a stripped down edition and considering how many students have asked us specifically about Outlook 2011 for Mac it's easy to know which version you prefer.
ITPro.co.uk explains why this is important:
"Outlook's email capabilities are very good. IMAP and POP worked perfectly, and if you're using common email providers - like Gmail or MobileMe - Outlook does a good job of automatically configuring itself using just your email address."
Most students will use more than one email address and have a least one social media profile.
The advantage with Outlook for Mac is that students can manage all their accounts from the one place and schedule alerts for custom events.
It's like having your very own personal assistant!
