Allows install on one PC or Mac and one tablet
Last month Microsoft was taking time to talk about its Office 365 productivity suite. When Office 365 Home launched it was available for $99.99 per year, or $9.99 monthly. That price allowed the suite to be installed on more than one computer. Users could put the software on up to five computers and tablets for the price
For those who needed only one computer or tablet to have access to office Microsoft had announced that it would be releasing Office 365 Personal later this spring. It is easy to assume that "later this spring" is going to be at the last possible minute, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Microsoft has now announced that Office 365 Personal is available to purchase reports ZDNet. The personal version of Office 365 lets the user install the apps on a single PC or Mac and one Windows tablet or iPad. The subscription fee for the software is $69.99 per year or $6.99 per month. That isn't a huge difference, but if you only need a single tablet and PC, it makes sense to save a bit of money.
The upside to Microsoft's big push to get everyone to use the Office 365 offerings is that your software is always up to date and you always get new features. The downside is that buying Office as we used to do where you own it forever is much cheaper in the long run than a never ending subscription fee.
