    And quite frankly, I don't see how spending $100-$200 would hurt for an absolutely excellent Office suite full of great applications...
    You must be a student, Avalon ...

    Buy Office 2010 - Office.com

    Maybe it's cheaper in Australia? Keep your lunch money safe, Avalon.
    Well I have no need for the Professional edition! :P
    Oh and for us it is extremely over-priced. $515 for the Home edition. I made the assumption that it was cheap for the OP based on his comparative local time (as there is no flag).

    Still, not being a student, where can you get MS Office 2010 for $100-$200?
    What country - flag or not?

    Yeah, it's not the Professional version, but our OP only wanted the starter edition, so...
    It wasn't meant to be a bounding variable between all versions, if that's what you're implying. :P

    Yes, The Student version is not expansive. You know why?

    Your answer - because you buy separate version, each application costs very expansive, $140. And you purchase the separate version calculate out (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote) is already $560, and expansive than the professional version. The Home and student is only $119.99 for 1 user 1 pc only and $149.99 for multiple pc and user. The differences are big. $560-$150=$410

    Maybe I perform a full factory recovery via the partition.

    @Bill2: "Office Starter 2010 is NOT available for purchase, it only comes preinstalled. Where did you get the installation file from?"
    re: 1 - You can easly get it from the revovery partition of the laptop with preinstaled Office 2010 starter. 2 - You can download it legaly from Microsoft web site (if You are system builder; or if You sign in as a system builder): Microsoft Office Starter 2010 .

    Anyway, does anyone know how to install the Microsoft Office Starter 2010 on Windows 8? I get a message that I need Windows Vista with a SP1 or later. I can install it on Vista or Windows 7 without problems. I can also run To-Go version (on flashdrive) on Vista and W7 but not W8, the same error.

    I don't want to install and register my legal Academic Edition version on the W8CP until final version of the windows 8.
