"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

 Free Shipping on Orders Over $50 and under 30 pounds (Orders Up to 30lbs qualify. Excludes shipments to AK & HI.)
Retail Box/License – This type of license is advisable for home and small office use (except where noted).

Do I need to improve my typing?

Whether you're a "two-finger typist" or are already fairly proficient, improving your typing skills can be extremely beneficial. The bottom line is this: if you type with one or two fingers (hunt-and-peck style) on each hand, the average person can probably manage 25-35 WPM (words per minute). If you learn to touch type, you can increase that speed to 50-100 WPM.

Most of the things we do on a computer involve typing. And the quicker you can type, the quicker you get those tasks (online research, writing essays, book reports, term papers, etc.) done. The quicker you get your typing tasks completed, the more productive you are which lets you:

– Spend more time studying for school/classes
– Help you get a job or yet, a better paying job
– Have more free time to sit back and think of creative ideas
– Email faster
– Become more efficient communicating with friends on Myspace, Facebook, etc.
– Employers: Purchase Mavis Beacon for your employees and boost productivity in your company
