    - Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Student 2011: Includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Messenger and is priced at $119 for a single install or $149 for a Family Pack allowing up to three installs in a single household.

    - Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Business 2011: Includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and Messenger and is priced at $199 for a single install or $279 for a Multi-Pack that allows a user to install Office on two of their Macs.

    - Microsoft Office for Mac Academic 2011: Includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and Messenger and is available for higher education students, staff, and faculty, with a single install priced at $99. This academic version may only be purchased from authorized academic stores or direct from Microsoft.

    That's the description given on this website. Home and Business looks like it include Outlook, but the Student and Academic editions look exactly the same.

    They are very similar.

    Student: No Outlook, Has the option of the $149 family pack for THREE installs

    Business: Includes Outlook, Multi-Pack only allows 2 Installs

    Academic: Includes Outlook, Best Value at $99, However must have the higher education credentials, unlike the student edition. One install only.
