Want Windows Live OneCare with a Side of Office? Get Equipt!


CNet reports that the Microsoft Office subscription service previously code-named "Albany" will be sold at Circuit City as Microsoft Equipt.

Equipt Makes Home Users Well-Equipped

As we reported back in April , Equipt includes a subscription to Windows Live OneCare antivirus,  Microsoft Office Student and Teacher edition (includes Word 2007, Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007 and OneNote 2007), Office Live Workspace, as well as Windows Live Suite (Live Messenger, Live Mail, Live Photo Gallery, Live Writer, and Live Toolbar).

How Much? Not Much!

A one-year subscription to Equipt will cost $69.99, which is only $20 more than a one-year subscription to Windows Live OneCare - and, up to three home PC users are covered by a single subscription.

Although Circuit City is the first vendor that will offer Equipt, you might see it other places over time.

For more details, see the press release and fact sheet (.doc format).
