Price increases for most Aussies wanting Office 2010.

Microsoft Australia has finally announced their prices for Microsoft Office 2010.

Home and Student 2010 has a recommended retail price of $209

Home and Business 2010 at $379

Professional 2010 at $849

There are also ‘Product Key Card’ options for $169, $279 and $499 respectively however, as Office-Watch.com has noted before, the PKC option looks cheaper but is only for one non-transferable license compared to the retail packages with two transferable licenses (3 for Home and Student edition).

MS Australia is boasting that the retail prices remain the same for Office 2007 comparable bundles – excepting Home and Business 2010 which is cheaper. Microsoft Oz says this is because Publisher has been dropped in favor of OneNote in the 2010 bundle.

At first glance this looks good value however we suspect that Aussie customers will be paying more than other non-US customers, for example in the UK. A close analysis will follow soon.

Update: originally Microsoft Australia said that the Home and Business PKC version would sell for $269 – on 4 June 2010 we were advised of their error – the correct price is $279 (changed above).
