  1. Is there really a difference between the student verison of the office 2007? I know a friend that can get the ultimate for a pretty cheap price....but would have to verify as a student..my question would be...is there really a difference?? what about for photoshop? the adobe cs3 web premium edition?

    thanks.......

    It is unbelievable to me that MS did not include Outlook in the Student Edition. Therefore, I may just give Thunderbird a try.

    The only real advantage I see with Outlook over Thunderbird is that Thunderbird can't deal with Exchange servers, so you have to go IMAP which is no good compared to Exchange.

    The Student version I think allows you to install on up to 3 computers, the Professional and Ultimate versions only allow 1 installation.

    I would not go with ultimate unless you are going to use the extra programs that come with it.
    I second SNGX1275 on what he said about outlook. If you have any exchange account, you will need outlook because exchange requires proxy settings, which are not included in Thunderbird :)

    Goodluck!!

    You gotta love Student editions... There is no differences really in the programs themselves... I believe its all just licensing that is different.
