Netbooks are great but one of the biggest problems users of netbooks run into when they need to install software is that netbooks lack optical drives. That means that digital software is needed unless the user has an external optical drive.
Corel has announced a version of its office productivity suite that is specifically optimized for netbooks and other computers lacking optical drives. The Corel Home Office suite comes on a USB drive and has low memory requirements and a small footprint.
The software includes Corel Write, Corel Calculate, and Corel Show for presentations. Netbook owners not needing some of the applications can make a custom install and only get the apps they need. The Corel Home Office suite is available now for $69.99.
