Over at Circuit City they are offering what is called Equipt. Originally Equipt came with a 3 subscription version of Windows Live OneCare plus a the full version of Microsoft Office 2007 – Home and Student. But here is the catch. Since Microsoft is dropping Windows Live OneCare, there is no longer any subscription. So for $69.99 you get the full version of Office 2007 – Home and Student version.
On the Circuit City site they describe the product requirements as:
- 2 GHz or faster processor
- 1 GB of RAM or more
- 4 GB of available hard-disk space; a portion of this disk space will be freed after installation
- CD-ROM or DVD drive
- 1024 x 768 or higher-resolution monitor
- Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 or later (32-bit only), or Windows Vista® or later (32-bit or 64-bit)
Microsoft has confirmed that the subscription service will be ended so you do in fact get the full version of Office to use forever without renewing the subscription.
