Microsoft has announced how much UK customers are going to have to fork out for its Office 2010 application suite.
And, unsurprisingly, Office 2010 will be more expensive in the UK than it is in the States.
At least the difference isn’t massive at the low end, with Office Home & Student being priced at £110 (as opposed to $150, or £95, in the US).
You will be able to pick it up cheaper than this, however, if you buy a new PC with a pre-installed trial copy of Office.
To unlock the copy, it will be possible to purchase a product key card from Microsoft, and this will be cheaper at £90 for Office Home & Student.
However, the catch here is that this version is only licensed for the one PC, as opposed to the retail boxed copy which is for three PCs.
Office Home & Business will cost £240 (£190 via key card activation), and Office Professional will weigh in at £400 (or £300, a considerable saving, for the key card version).
There will also be a free version of the suite, Office Starter 2010, which will come pre-installed on select PCs. It will be a cut-down affair, with just very basic versions of Word and Excel.
