    What a giant rip-off. The price of the MS Office Home and Student Edition (non-upgradable) on the U. S. Apple store is $149.99. On the Canadian Apple store site, the exact same software is $199.99. $50.00!!!!
    There is no way, with the Canuck Buck currently at .98 U.S., that Apple Canada can justify this HUGE price difference. I was going to buy this software, but now I'm not. Jesse James was at least polite enough to wear a mask and use a gun.:mad::mad:

    Microsoft prices their products, Apple just puts the items in their store. If you check you'll probably find it's Microsoft's decision.

    On Amazon it's a lot more. Link. Probably a different version, but still pricey.
