Microsoft Office gently lifts prices for Mac by 17 percent

Microsoft has quietly raised the price of its Office for Mac 2011 to nearly 17 percent, putting it at the same price level with Office 2013 for Windows.

The software giant has also left the multi-package sales licenses, allowing customers to buy multiple copies of the application suite at a discounted rate.

The Accreditation Board for single Mac Home and Student Edition now costs $ 140, an increase of about 17 per cent the previous price of $ 120. Meanwhile, Microsoft has increased the price of Office for Mac Home and Business, which includes Outlook, $ 220, a price increase of 10 percent compared to the previous price of $ 200. Microsoft does not seem to broadcast the price increase, so it is not clear if the price increase is effective. However, Computerworld, which showed an increase, estimated to have occurred around January 29th the same day as Microsoft Office 2013 and Office 365 was launched.

CNET has contacted Microsoft for more information on price increases and will update this report when we learn more.

In addition to price increases, Microsoft has stopped selling licenses multi-editions. The multi-user packs are still available on Amazon (while supplies last) at a significant discount, but notes that the registration software is an old edition.

Movement is apparently intended to redirect clients to Office 365, which costs $ 100 for an annual subscription. This new offering is part of efforts by Microsoft to bring its suite of Office server tools and workflow collaboration on the cloud.
