5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 05/20/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Student 3-User

Pros: Cheaper than one student registration, and I get three! Sure, at first I only needed the one, no friends were in a bind. But once my boyfriend got a new laptop and his trial expired, I got to be the hero. ;) Timing of my purchase even allowed him to keep his Office 2013 "upgrade."
This is the Office all of our University computers use, so popping a file on the flash drive and editing/printing it at a lab is a breeze. Much better than the freeware I was using.

Cons: The corporation, bro!

Other Thoughts: love that 2010 doesn't pester me about using a cloud. My files will stay on MY computer, thanks. It looks better than 2013, too!

Pros: light, fast, windows 7 is great, like the back-lit keyboard more than expected, etc.

Cons: scratches easily-got it with gouges, and new dimples and scratches appear with only use being desk, back-pack, desk... etc. The mouse pad used to zoom and scroll sideways, and I could get Adobe to rotate, but that stopped working within a month. :( maybe the dry climate that made sparks every other time I touched my laptop? oh well. Big issue: My back up CD's did not write correctly! Trying to use the hidden partition recovery is also no dice--there is a corruption somewhere. (which explains the CD's) so be very careful and prepared should you try to reformat your computer.

Other Thoughts: I came on to see if I could maybe get a cheap recovery disc. I was being zealous about the reset--the laptop was slowed down after a sketchy download. But the product is very very solid otherwise. ...I just need to get it an OS again. :P And on the bright side, I should shed a lot of bloatware now. (I have not tried any modern games on it, used mostly Office for school, browsing with many tabs, and some Illustrator.)
