RightNote on sale for 50% regular price. RightNote Professional – $29.97

RightNote includes different types of notes to store different types of information. There’s a word processing note for textual information, a spreadsheet note for accounting info or any type of list, a source code note for source code snippets, and a webpage note to save webpages for future reference and offline viewing . All your notes are stored in a hierarchical tree outline and can easily be moved around and re-organized at a later point. Folder notes and the unique folder tree allow you to view your outline at a higher level and make even large trees manageable.

I’ve been waiting for RightNote to go on sale and today is the day. Yes, I do indeed have OneNote and I even have AllMyNotes, so why would I want RightNote? I use AllMyNotes while in the office to handle customer issues. I use OneNote like a Wikipedia to store all my issues and resolutions. I use OneNote at home to write blog articles and organize what I want to write next. I want to get RightNote since it’ll look and work the same as OneNote, but the footprint will be significantly smaller for working on a laptop. OneNote is a great tool, but the cost is getting pretty high and in most cases you can’t get OneNote on it’s own, it comes as a bundle.

To get the complete version for $30 is a damn good deal. If you do a lot of writing or you work with technical issues and need to write down tons of research, you need to get these sorts of tools.

OneNote in a plain brown wrapper

Well, they look generic as can be, but the discs are real and the CD key is included. Here we have my two new copies of OneNote 2007, the pair of them for less than $20. They certainly have the Microsoft hologram from the time period and even the warning of not to make illegal copies of the CD. These are cast off CDs for sure, meaning they were part of a bundle that no longer exists so they’re being sold off. I’m fine with that. It’s been enough years that I don’t believe anyone cares anymore.

Need a cheap copy of OneNote 2007? eBay looks to be the answer.

Where to get a cheap copy of Microsoft OneNote 2007?

Since I found all these other OneNote replacements, I spent some time trying to find a bargain on the real thing. Since OneNote 2013 is out I figured there had to some sort of sale or discount out there. Turns out the best deal for OneNote 2007 is on eBay.

I know what you’re thinking – it’s bad business to by a product you have to activate from a place like eBay. Who knows what the previous owner did right? I hear you, but you can find many copies of OneNote that are still sealed in their CD sleeve and that’s where the CD Key is. To that end I found multiple copies of OneNote for $15 and even picked up a copy for less than $5, including shipping.

I checked the sellers and they were pretty reputable with 500-1000 people leaving positive feedback. I’m going to take that as a legit source for software. And honestly, I think these are cast off copies of OneNote. I think they may have been giveaways or were included as part of a bundle and never used. From everything I can they’re good and unused copies. The seller certainly says they’re new and haven’t been activated so if there’s a problem I should have no problem in getting my money back.

But to be honest, I’m kind of excited. It’s nice to know there is a source for cheap copies of OneNote out there. At least for now. I don’t think it’s a huge supply and since I just grabbed 2, the pool is getting smaller. I want to make sure I have working copies for the future. Like I said, I don’t like the interface to OneNote 2013. That whole Office 2013/Windows 8 look and feel is horrible to me. The 2007 version had just the right mix of menus and menu bars.

Anyway, OneNote is an awesome tool for writing down your ideas and actually writing full on articles and stories. Buying the full version can be expensive, but a quick search on eBay will net you some nice deals. Right now I see quite a few copies for $15 or less. Many of them have free shipping. Just make sure the package is still sealed and they specifically mention is HASN’T been activated.

I have a copy coming this Saturday which makes me quite happy. Good luck in getting yours!
