Office 2010 Home and Business Edition

    I am thinking of pre ordering Office 2010 Home and Business Edition to
    replace my Office 2003. Will I be able to install it on my desktop and
    laptop with the license that comes with 2010 or will I have to buy two
    licenses? That would probably be a deal killer.

    Thank you.

    You can pre-ordering now from Amazon
    <http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Office-2010-Home-Student/dp/B00337D8U6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=software&qid=1271536325&sr=1-1>,
    or you could buy Office 2007 now (from amazon or other retailers) and
    get upgrade free of charge to Office 2010
    <http://office2010.microsoft.com/en-gb/tech-guarantee/microsoft-office-2010-technology-guarantee-united-kingdom-FX101829423.aspx>.


    The upgrade is either download version or a DVD version subject to
    paying a modest sum to cover handling and shipping costs about $10.

    Either way, the systems requirements for Office 2010 is here:

    <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ee624351%28office.14%29.aspx>

    You can install Office 2010 - Home 7 Student version on 3 systems at any
    one time so I can tell you categorically that you don't need to buy two
    licenses.

    Jack,

    That depends on how you buy it - major sources on the internet have quoted
    Microsoft that upgrade pricing will NOT be available.

    Basically, you either buy a Full Packaged Product that includes a disc and
    more flexible license terms (this is what I believe you need) or a more
    limited Product Key Card (Previously the term Media-Less was used)

    A Product key card version is less expensive, BUT Licensed for 1 install on
    single PC only AND License cannot be transferred to another PC -

    according to the description supplied on Amazon.com (I am using that source
    as a reference so you can compare and pre-order if desired)

    Yes, thank you, Does what you say about the Home Student version apply to
    the Home and Business Version?

    Thanks again.

    Thank you. Did you mean the Home and Business version rather that the
    Professional version or did I misinterpret?

    Jack,

    What I included in my reply applies to BOTH Office 2010 Home and Business
    version and Office 2010 Professional version.

    I included both as a reference for others that might need the additional
    programs included with Office 2010 Professional.

    Another reply to you was actually quoting Office Home and Student 2010 -

    Full Packaged Product of Office Home and Student 2010 is a license for 3
    computer and a Product Key Card version of Office Home and Student 2010 is
    a license for:

    Licensed for 1 install on single PC only AND License cannot be transferred
    to another PC

    AND this additional restriction applies to Office Home and Student 2010:

    NOTE: - Not for use in any commercial, nonprofit or revenue-generating
    activities, or by any government organization.

    Microsoft decided to simplify the Office Suite 2010 lineup - so one cannot
    assume IF they buy a particular 2007 suite (with free 2010 upgrade) they
    will get the same products included in the free 2010 upgrade.

    To get free Office Home & Business 2010 you need to buy Office Standard
    2007. Its licensing terms are as follows:

    2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. Before you use the software under a
    license, you must assign that license to one device. That device is the
    “licensed device.” A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a
    separate device.
    a. Licensed Device. You may install and use one copy of the software on
    the licensed device.
    b. Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device
    for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.
    c. Separation of Components. The components of the software are licensed
    as a single unit. You may not separate the components and install them
    on different devices.


    I suspect these licensing terms will be the same in Office 2010. the
    source os here:

    <http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/HA102103171033.aspx>

    At he above link, all Office 2007 is listed and you need to click on it
    to get a link to the downloadable license.

    The comparisons with Office 2007 is here:

    <http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/Office-Suites/category/202>

    At the bottom of the chart you will see office 2010 equivalent product.

    Jack,

    OK, caught my mistake - I was posting a reference to the Office 2010 Home
    and Business - and included a Microsoft Office Professional 2010 reference
    - sorry

    >>> Traditional Disc Version
    >>>
    >>> This version of Microsoft Office Professional 2010 includes the software


    BOTH Office 2010 Home and Business version and Office 2010 Professional
    version -

    Full Packaged Product include:

    "the software on disc, with a product key. It is licensed for one user to
    install on two PCs - a primary machine and a portable PC."

    As a business owner, I believe this is what you originally indicated you
    needed - license to install on 2 computers.

    Thanks for providing these resources and URL locations:

    However, I would suggest to Jack that if he can wait until the official
    release for 2010 - he would save money buying:

    Office 2010 Home and Business Edition Full Packaged Product at USD $279.99
    unless he can find a price closer to the 2010 version pricing:

    Lowest I could find was this at Amazon:

    Microsoft Office Standard 2007 FULL VERSION at USD $318.54

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000HCVR3A/encouragersof-20

    For some, that might be close enough.

    And of course, using the Microsoft comparison resource page:

    Sure. He could also buy an upgrade version provided he has the
    necessary qualifying product. For example, for most Office 2007
    "business" products, Microsoft Works version 6.0 to version 9.0 is a
    qualifying product and so if he shops around for Works product (about
    $20 from Amazon) then he would be in a better position to buy an upgrade
    of Office 2007 now and this could be upgraded to Office 2010 for free
    when it is released end June. Obviously, one needs to do the sums to
    get the optimum benefit. The last thing I want is him ending up paying
    more than he should. I like people to save money wherever possible.

    There ARE a limited number of 2007 products you can BUY today and receive
    FREE 2010, so I suggest this URL:

    http://office2010.microsoft.com/en-...010-technology-guarantee-faq-HA101812304.aspx

    Then click on "What Office 2007 products qualify..."

    For what Jack indicated he needed - my previous post of

    "Microsoft Office Standard 2007 FULL VERSION at USD $318.54

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000HCVR3A/encouragersof-20

    Buy Microsoft Office Standard 2007 today - get Office Home and Business
    2010 free"

    might possibly meets his needs (and others)

    Peter,

    In one of two places - use this handy chart - Buy 2007 Suite - Get THIS
    2010 Suite

    http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/Office-Suites/category/202

    OR

    http://office2010.microsoft.com/en-...010-technology-guarantee-faq-HA101812304.aspx

    Then click on "What Office 2007 products qualify..."

    (NOTE: Purchase and activate a qualifying Office 2007 product between March
    5, 2010, and September 30, 2010, and you can download Office 2010 at no
    additional cost.)

    The 2nd reference includes:

    Office Standard 2007 - get Office Home and Business 2010

    Buy Office Basic 2007 - get Office Home and Business 2010
