Microsoft India Offering Office 2010 At Rs 1,000 A PC

In the US, Microsoft has brought back Family Pack which is three Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade licenses for as low as $149. Sometime back I had asked why Microsoft India doesn’t have something similar in India, the response was underwhelming. Anyhoo… today, Abhishek Baxi shared on twitter that Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student edition is now available at Rs. 2,999.

The Home and Student SKU is meant for as the name suggests but the licensing says that one copy can be used on up to three PCs. The Home and Student SKU consists of:

  • Word 2010
  • PowerPoint 2010
  • Excel 2010
  • OneNote 2010

Quite an attractive deal. Thanks for the tip Vasu.
