This is the Thanksgiving shopping deal that you don’t want to miss. If you have any need for Microsoft Office on the Macintosh at all, now is your chance to get it for a ridiculously low price. For a short time only MacMall has an instant rebate on the Special Media Edition. (Note: If you click the link early, the non-sale price will show.) $350 INSTANT REBATE! Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition NOW only $69.99! (was $429.99) from 11/27-11/28
I was personally debating whether I was going to put MS Office on the new MacBook I am buying. This answers that question. In addition to the normal Office features, including Entourage which is the basically Outlook for the Mac, this special media edition includes Microsoft Expression Media. Expression Media is the program that used to be known as iView Media Pro before Microsoft bought them. It is an excellent document and imaging cataloging and retrieval program. Think of it as iPhoto on steroids.
So, there you have it. So far our of all the Black Friday previews I have seen, this is the big winner. And, by the way, Happy Thanksgiving!
