Santa Claus is coming – and this year he’s going to have to cope with the credit crunch! There will still be loads of PCs bought this Christmas, and given the offers by retailers at the moment, there will be some great deals around.

It might be a good time to remind your students & staff that they can buy Office 2007 Ultimate Edition at the bargain price of £38.95, through the Ultimate Steal offer. Not only will they get the top-end version (rather than the smaller Home & Student Edition), but they’ll pay less than the normal retail version.

Of course, there’s some limits on who can buy:

  • They must have an email address than ends in “” to register & buy
  • FE Students must have 15 hours of scheduled contact time on their course
  • Staff must be employed for more than 8 hours per week (or 4, if teaching)
