Software-Where to buy&download Office for Mac,home&student,english edition-2011?

Please advise where I can urgently get a Office for Mac, Home and Student, English edition, 2011?

The shops in Zurich only retail German versions.

The Microsoft store online does not post to buyers domiciled in Switzerland and you can't even use a UK credit card and get it delivered to a UK address for example, because it picks up you are accessing the site via Switzerland.

Please advise???

Why pay if you can have it for free and legal? Consider/Try Open Office

It does all Office does and maybe more, works fine for me since 2 years now.

Available for Windows and Mac here.

Ebay, amazon and gumtree have to come from UK and I want it sooner if possible.

Will checkout the open source website.

THANK YOU!

You could always buy the licence off Ebay (get the seller to send you the key by email) and then simply download a version off a torrent site and use your already purchased key to activate.

@CASTRO - yes, I saw that method mentioned on one of the gumtree ads, but wasn't sure it really works....but with your confirmation I assume now it does.

Then Open Office is what you need, download it and use it this evening.

It takes a few hours to get use to but its all very familiar , the main things works the same like the official office do.

The help section on it is brilliant, i now refuse to pay money for Office as the free software does it all for me, and its legal, no strings attached.

I think you can download it directly from the megaupload link down there...

Hello,
I think I can buy it for you (genuine licence, unopened, never activated, with DVD, etc...).
It will be a "HUP" licence, which means I buy it cheaper than retail, but everything is Genuine and will be new.

PM for price negotiation if interested.

Re: Software-Where to buy&download Office for Mac,home&student,english edition-2011?

I tried open office on a PC and MAC and found it to be annoyingly slow. It is free but sometimes you do get what you pay for. Believe me, if it was good i would use it...I hate paying inflated prices for any software.

Great, if you are computing students, you can get those free sometimes (Microsoft office licences)

Sorry was meant at Joey82! Will try open_office, dowloaded it and might be enough.

At least now I know where to pickup a real copy locally in Zurich if need be.

The mega_download link takes a day and a half to download.

Thanks. (don't know how to add a 'thank you' to a person individually..)

You haven't been a member long enough with enough posts to 'Thank' yet. But I'm sure the guys know that you appreciate their efforts and that when you meet up with them in real life you'll surely buy them a... Text deleted by Mod as being Off Topic.
