Microsoft Offers Deal on Office v.X

New Mac purchases earn discount of office suite By Dave Nagel
Microsoft and Apple have come together to offer a deal on Office v.X. For a limited time, those who purchase a new Macintosh system can receive a discount on Microsoft's office productivity suite for Mac OS X. This is the first time the two companies have offered such an arrangement, according to Microsoft.

The discount offers $300 off the normal $499 price of Office v.X. Office includes a text editor, spreadsheet and other common office productivity tools.


"As our relationship with Apple continues to grow, we're excited to work with Apple to make it easier for new Mac buyers to acquire our latest version of Office for the Mac, Apple's newest hardware, and the new Mac OS X v. 10.2 'Jaguar,'" said Tim McDonough, marketing director for the Macintosh Business Unit at Microsoft, in a prepared statement. "Together, Office v. X and Macs running 'Jaguar' will enable new users of Mac to communicate with their PC counterparts more seamlessly than before."

Microsoft has also announced plans to make MSN compatible with Mac OS X by early 2003.

The discounted Office v.X is available for those who purchase new Mac systems in North America between now and Jan. 7, 2003. The discounted price is U.S. $199 or CDN $299. For more information, visit http://www.microsoft.com/mac.
