    We are in desperate need of the most recent version of Powerpoint Software.
    We are trying to find the best price
    available. So far $178.00 is the best
    we've seen. There's got to be a cheaper
    price somewhere on the planet right?
    Please help!

    PS: To Dreamboat, thank you for your assistance on the report I had to do in Powerpoint. My instructor gave me quite a bit of help and I was able to get it done. However, I had to do it at school, not at home. That is the primary reason why I need to purchase Powerpoint, plus my father will need it for his Phd program.

    What grade are you in? Microsoft offers deep discounts ($25 or $30 for the entire Office Pro suite) for educational purposes but you must qualify. Otherwise, $178 doesn't sound that bad.

    I am in the nursing program at the University of South Carolina. My father is a pastor of a small Apostolic Church and in he is a graduate student. What other qualifications are necessary in order to get the discount?

    Thank you for your timely response!

    We would like to make a correction on the title of the software we need. We actually need Microsoft Office Suite 2001 (Powerpoint is included in the suite). Please provide the best price of this software. Thank you.

    check out the univ bookstore but here's some info on Office XP, MS isn't pushing Office 2000 anymore, but you can still find it in stores

    usually all you need is a valid student's card to buy the software

    best buy has it for $149 compared to $479 regular price
    and here's Microsoft's site , same $149 price

    upgrade prices are generally lower than the full price but it sounds like you need the whole suite - and you can't beat $149 for the whole thing

    Check with your school. The college I attended is currently offering Office XP Professional & FrontPage 2002 Bundle for $35 and Office 2000 Premium Bundle Bundle for $30 with a valid student ID.

    Certainly took awhile! Sometimes Microsoft's site can be so frustrating!

    We want to know how can we use one scanner for two computers. The software is ScanMaker V600/E3 Plus (version 2.38 for Win. 95) We now have Windows XP.

    Also where can we find the best price on a PC Headset w/microphone? We had one with our "Andrea Voice Solutions" Software ($45.00), but it is now needs replacing. Know of anything cheaper and compatible?

    Have you tried www.tigerdirect.com? They have pretty decent prices on all computer stuff. Get yourself a catalog from them, then they send them about once a month.

    As for the scanner, I think you'd be better off researching how to connect the two 'puters. Then, it's a no-brainer sharing printers and other peripherals. You might want to ask this question in the networking forum.
