500 dollars for VPC and office? that's a good deal i think. how much is VPC alone? and just office is 380 bucks, so that means VPC in this situation is $120?
how much was VPC previously?

Depending on the client OS around $400.
But think of it this way... If office is costing you $380, you're getting VPC and a Windows XP license for $120.

Now if only they released an Entourage sync for PocketPC devices... live would be grand. Not that I have one... but I'd consider getting one if I could sync it NATIVELY.

Another time I'm glad I'm a teacher. $150 for three computers. Not bad. Not bad at all.

I paid $250 for VPC w/WinXPabout 8 months ago, but that was a student discount price. I got Office X for $30 through a special arrangement between M$ and my school. Gotta love being a student. I got Macromedia Studio MX for $199 through the school as well. :D
