    Hi all!

    I'd like to buy M$ Office for Mac (Business Edition), but my country charges an absurd amount of money for it (around $750), so, I'm definitely going and eBaying it. However, I see that most sellers offer this "Not for Resale" version.

    What's the difference between that and the regular version? Some point in licence? It's important as I'm going to use the software for commercial purposes.

    Thanks for taking your time to read this!

    "Not for Resale" means just that: it's a version that's not intended to be sold. I have seen some complaints from eBay and craigslist buyers where this means that the seller is actually selling a pirated version of the suite.

    Office Mac Business Edition is $399.95 on the US apple store.

    I found the licence agreement too. It's true -- just like a regular licence, except you're not allowed to sell it. :)
