One of the best things about OneNote 2010 is the ability to store your notes in the cloud and then access them from just about anywhere. You love the OneNote Web App for the basics, but what if you want to use the full version of OneNote 2010 on multiple computers?
If you're a student heading back to class this fall or a home user on a budget, you don't need to do a lot of math to check the best deal on what amounts to 3 full copies of OneNote 2010 for one low price.
How? Here's a hint:
A standalone copy of OneNote 2010 retails for around $79.99 at national resellers, including the Microsoft Store, Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Office Depot. Not a bad deal for such a great program.
However, if you purchase OneNote 2010 as part of the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 edition, you can save big. Not only does this collection include full versions of OneNote 2010, Word 2010, Excel 2010, and PowerPoint 2010, but best of all, you can install all four of these programs on up to three different computers (for example, your family PC at home, your gaming PC at the dorm, and the laptop you take to class).
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 edition allows for installation on up to three home computers.(Not for use in any commercial, nonprofit, or revenue-generating business or government organization.)
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 retails for around $149.99 (or less) at national resellers, including the Microsoft Store, Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Office Depot. If you were to separately purchase three copies of any one single program in the Office Home and Student edition, it would already cost more than the entire suite. So, even if you only care about OneNote, choosing the Office Home and Student edition is like buying 2 copies of OneNote and getting 1 for free.

Tip: Want OneNote 2010 immediately? Visit the Microsoft Store and avoid shipping costs by opting for the digital download option. It's better for your wallet and for the environment!

Actually, the Microsoft Student Discount on Office 2010 Professional is actually cheaper; you can get it for $79.99 if you're a student with an .edu email address. You're still permitted to install it on 2 computers you personally own, so if you have a desktop and laptop/netbook you're still covered. And it includes OneNote, of course :) There's also a student discount for Windows 7, so if you haven't upgraded yet it's a great chance to get up to date all around cheaply.
For more info about the deal, check out my post about it as it details exactly what students need to do to get in on the special: techinch.com/.../students-upgrade-to-office-2010-and-windows-7-the-cheap-and-easy-way
Thanks for the excellent tip, Matthew. While the Academic Edition won't work for home users, it's definitely a great deal for students who want or need the additional apps besides OneNote. I checked out your blog post. You do a nice job outlining the requirements and showing the verification process. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
Just £85 in the U.K.
Further to Matthew's post, the Australian student portal (itsnotcheating.com.au) offers MSOffice at around 90% off retail for students with an EDU.AU email address.
This is a great post and makes me think of where I can fit in. I do a little bit of everything mentioned here and I guess I have to find my competitive advantage.
Need help.... I own a copy of Microsoft Ultimate 2007 and recently bought a netbook to complement my home computer. I was able to download Microsoft Professional Plus from the Office website using my product key, but when it was all loaded up, OneNote wasn't to be found... And, actually, OneNote was the only reason for buying the netbook (organise office and personal life - a new years resolution). Can't figure out what I need to do next. Please email if you have any thoughts. Regards
I recently bought a laptop with Office 2010 Home and Student pre-loaded and I bought the activation key. I would also like to start using One Note on my work computer, too. I downloaded the trial version of One Note 2010 at work and when I tried to use the same activation key, it wouldn't take it. I thought One Note could be used on up to three computers. What can I do to make sure that my One Note at work doesn't expire in 59 days?
