Microsoft Launches Free 30-Day Trials of Office 2011


Microsoft today announced that it has launched free 30-day trial licenses for Office for Mac 2011, offering users the ability to test drive the popular productivity suite before committing to a purchase.

If you're still thinking about Office 2011, I'm happy to announce we now have a full trial available at www.microsoft.com/mac/trial, free to use for 30-days after download. We know it's important for some of you to be able to test out new features. For those that will be trying the suite for the first time, we hope you enjoy some of the new items - Outlook for Mac, new co-authoring tools, Excel's Sparklines, Dynamic Reorder in Word & PowerPoint, and more.

Office Senior Director of Product Management Pat Fox also notes that sales of Office for Mac 2011 since the new version debuted in late October have exceeded the company's internal sales goals so far.

For those who have already decided to purchase the suite or who opt to do so after giving the trial version a test, Amazon offers discounts on all Office packages:

- Office Mac Home Student 2011 - 1 Pack ($99.99)
- Office Mac Home Student Family Pack 2011 ($124.25)

- Microsoft Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 - 1 Pack ($174.99)
- Office Mac Home Business Multi Pack 2011 ($228.43)
