    If you try configuring a new macbook pro through the education store, I get all the usual student discounts and stuff. Now, like usual, they also have the option to get microsoft office preinstalled on my laptop too. However, clicking on it, does not add to the price at all (like its free....) but I can't see any promotion of this being free. Is this just my browser being weird or is this legit?

    I have a screenshot here. It's the configuration page of the i7 15" model, everything unchanged except the microsoft office option. The shipping date however changes from within 24 hours to 1-3 days.

    Restart your Mac and try again to see if it still says its free.

    When I click your link it sure seems free, so i had to check with the Swedish AS, both regular and EDU and we can't even get MS Office:MAC preinstalled and have to pay extra for it, almost $200 extra.

    So, thats a sweet deal you have there.

    I tried doing the same thing. It does indeed seem to be free, but at the checkout page the price for the MBP goes up due to Office.
