Where to buy laptop software?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, so I've bought my new laptop (thanks for the recommendations!). 

 

I need office but don't want to fork out for it. I've found 2016 for £11 at https://softkeys.uk/collections/microsoft-office/products/microsoft-office-2016-professional-plus

 

Is that likely to be alright? Has anyone used that site? 

 

Also ill need photoshop & illustrator. Cs3 doesn't run on Windows 10 so I'm screwed and don't want to fork out £40 a month for the pleasure considering I use it for 3 or 4 hours a month...

Use a site like that, you are most likely buying a hookey volume license key.

 

Up to you.   

 

Not affiliated with Microsoft in any way shape or form though.

 

You get what you pay for.   Some people choose to use Kodi etc to watch premium content cheaper.   They always find a way to justify that too.

I went for the link I posted, it's spot on and works perfectly. I couldn't care less if its affiliated with Microsoft, same product but at a fraction of the price!

That's not actually true though mate

The Keys sites basically sell genuine keys for software at hugely discounted prices


They're genuine


I've used them for years and years

To be honest, I don't care how legal it is, it does the same job at a fraction of the price

 

Would you be ok with your boss saying, “we are only paying you 50p for the work that you do today, the end result is the same, at a fraction of the price”.
