This is the latest version of the Home Office programs, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. The software suite includes Office Excel 2007, Office OneNote 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, and Office Word 2007. For those that may not have tried this latest version out before — be prepared it is a little different than what you are used to.
The ribbon menu is a departure from the older versions of Office, so you will definitely have to be able to adapt yourself to those changes. But the program does allow you the option to save your documents in all kinds of formats including older Word versions, which is very handy since older versions of Office are unable to open Office ’07 documents. It did take a little getting used to when I first started using the program, but I do like it a lot now.

If you are looking for a program that will let you do all of the standard office functions, this one obviously fits the bill, with a name that is highly recognizable. And at the regular MSRP of $149.99, this sale price of $79.95 with free shipping at Newegg.com certainly sweetens the deal.
It just may make a perfect addition for that laptop someone you know is getting. My, won’t they think Santa is just so nice this year?
