Earlier this month Microsoft’s MacBU ((Macintosh Business Unit) announced that Office for Mac 2011 reached RTM (Release to Manufacturing) and that the productivity suite is on track for an October release. At the time Microsoft did not provide a specific release date – but that has chanced. Microsoft has disclosed the released date for Office for Mac 2011. The productivity suite will become publicly available on October 26.

“We are excited to announce that starting on October 26 you can get your own copy of Office for Mac 2011! And starting today preorders can be placed at Amazon.com,” announced Microsoft’s MacBU.

Personally I’m glad to see the Office for Mac 2011 prices aren’t far from the US estimated retail prices Microsoft disclosed earlier this year. Below is a comparison of between Microsoft’s estimates and the Amazon prices (basically they added $0.99 to Microsoft’s estimated retail price) :

Office for Mac Home and Student 2011
  • Microsoft estimate - $119 for a single install
  • Amazon price - $119.99 for a single install
  • Microsoft estimate - $149 for a Family Pack that includes 3 installs
  • Amazon price - $149.99 for a Family Pack that includes 3 installs

Office for Mac Home and Student 2011 includes Word for Mac, PowerPoint for Mac, Excel for Mac and Messenger for Mac.

Office for Mac Home and Business 2011
  • Microsoft estimate - $199 for a single install
  • Amazon price - $199.99 for a single install
  • Microsoft estimate - $279 for a Multi-Pack that includes 2 installs
  • Amazon price - $279.99 for a Multi-Pack that includes 2 installs

Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 includes Word for Mac, PowerPoint for Mac, Excel for Mac, Outlook for Mac and Messenger for Mac.

It must be said that Microsoft will also market Microsoft Office for Mac Academic 2011 for $99 (1 install) at authorized academic stores and online. This version was created for higher education students, staff and faculty; it includes Word for Mac, PowerPoint for Mac, Excel for Mac, Outlook for Mac and Messenger for Mac.

All Office for Mac 2011 versions will be available in 13 languages: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, Polish and Russian.
