Microsoft has made Office 2013 available to purchase. The office suite will be available as a digital download or you can pick up a physical copy from different retailers. I’ve spent the last several months testing Office 2013 and really liked it.
You can read my impressions in my full review of Office 2013.
There’s currently four different packages of Office 2013 that you can purchase: Office 356 Home Premium, Office Home and Student 2013, Office Home and Business 2013, and Office Professional 2013. The pricing for each suite is as follows:
- Office 365 Home Premium: $99.99/year
- Office Home and Student 2013: $139.99
- Office Home and Business 2013: $219.99
- Office Professional 2013: $399.99
The more expensive suites will have applications like Access and Publisher. The most interesting package is the $100 per year Office 365. It lowers the cost of entry and gives users access to every Microsoft Office application, including Access and Publisher (if you’re on a PC). Office 365 gives you complete access to Microsoft’s cloud apps so you can work from any machine that has a compatible browser. Users will also get 20GB of SkyDrive space, which is plenty to house all of your documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
