                                   OFFICE 365 HOME PREMIUM

One thing I will say is you have to make sure your computer has Office 365 Home Premium. It is vital to assisting your children and your business. Since my daughter is starting college I wanted to make sure she had everything she needed for school.

I purchased her some school supplies and a new computer but now when you purchase a new computer, Office 365 Home Premium software is no longer loaded onto your computer. So when I was given the opportunity to review the Office 365 Home Premium we both were excited.

You see its vital that she has Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access, for each platform she will need for her classes. It went rather smooth downloading the system. Once installed we began to take a look around, it is so much to the Office 365 that it actually took us a while reviewing everything and we still are learning.

When she mentioned to me that she would be working with graphs and spreadsheets, one things for sure this system will be able to really assist her in that area also.


A few other great things about Office 365 is, you get an extra 20GB online storage, 60 minutes of Skype calls each month to phones in 40+ countries, a subscription that can be used on at least 5 other computers plus you get to upgrade when your system expires. There is so many applications that she will be able to use, she can add pictures and  videos to her Word document.

You may be wondering what is so different about the 2013 Office 360 Home Premium…well here is some of what is new: The 2013 versions of  Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include new features that help you create, communicate and work efficiently from virtually anywhere. In addition to updating the traditional Office suites, Microsoft has developed brand new subscription versions of Office, specifically designed around the way customers use Office. Each new subscription offer will include the 2013 versions of the Office applications, for example Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus cloud services such as Skype world minutes and online storage with SkyDrive.

If your wondering if your computer supports the Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium, here is what you will need Windows 7, Windows 8, or Mac OS X version 10.6.0 or later to run Office on your PC or Mac. Other system requirements are as follows:

Computer and processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or greater x86/x64 processor with SSE2 instruction set (PC), Intel processor (Mac)

    I use Microsoft Office 365 too! I love it and highly recommend it. We have both Macs and PCs so it’s great that the right version of Office can be loaded on different computers types using the same key.
