    Upgrade to newer Office suite; buying on line a question


    Thinking about it, I did a google and saw that the 2013 was available from several sources at varying prices. Nearly all the stores bore unfamiliar names. How can I be sure that all the offerings are genuine before paying up? I can't see how!

    Give us a few names, maybe someone has dealt with them and can verify that they are legit

    Reputable sellers like Newegg and Amazon have it for around $115.00. The problem with buying from unknowns is that the software may install just fine, but bypass activation, and you'd never know. If you're running Windows 10, the days of pirated (not by you; but the seller) software remaining undiscovered are long gone.

    In case you didn't know, Office 2013 is for one computer only. You can no longer have it on one desktop and one laptop.

    You can buy Office 2016 Home and Student for a one-time cost of $149.00 (includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote)

    If you have more than a couple of PCs, a tablet and a phone, you can subscribe to Office 365 2016 for $99.99 per year.

    • Install on up to 5 PCs or Macs, 5 tablets, and 5 phones
    • 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage each for up to 5 users
    • Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access.

    This would be by far your best bargain as well as most convenient way to go if you have the need.

    I'm in UK so I'd assume a 1:1 conversion rate for the prices you guys have given. That's how it seems to work over here.
    Thanks for suggestion of giving examples, a nice thought, even though there's a large pond between us.

    Ponds are no obstacle to the Internet, Chip!

    I hope you get what you need at a reasonable price. Let us know how you fare.

    I looked over the current Office products and bought Office 365. I have a desktop and laptop, and my Daughter needed Word and Excel for her laptop. It was big leap for me as I've been using Office 2003.
