    Merry christmas everyone! I bought a new HP G62 laptop 2 months ago which already has Microsoft Office Starter 2010 installed on it but now I want the whole Microsoft Package, which software would you recommend and how do you go about buying it? Spending £90 seems a bit too much seeing as I bought my laptop for £600. Please help, thanks!

      As a student you can get the full copy of Microsoft Office 2010 (Professional edition I think?) for £40 or so.

      Edit:
      Here you go- http://www.software4students.co.uk/M...s-details.aspx
      Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus for £38.95, providing you're a student of course (If not, it'll set you back £340!!).

      There are other ways to acquire such software.. but anyhow if you're doubly sure that you actually need to use the extra software then go for it. Though as mentioned before OpenOffice is a free alternative and if I remember correctly you can open and create .doc and .docx etc files with them.

      Yeah, but it's nice to have all the features of Microsoft Office there just in case you want to pretty up your documents
