Microsoft Office 2013 now available – DVDs are ditched

Just about two and a half years after Microsoft Office 2010 comes Office 2013, a fresh approach to office/productivity applications. Because most of the changes are visual, many users will find themselves sticking with whatever they have now. Because Microsoft’s ditching DVDs/physical media for this release, you’ll have to download the software online after purchasing it. Pricing starts as low as $9.99 per month, with a $99.99 per year subscription also being available. These subscriptions grant you access to Office 365, which puts all of the Office 2013 applications inside of your web browser (in the cloud, if you will) so that you can access them anywhere. If you don’t like subscriptions, you can outright buy the Home & Student edition for $139.99 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote), or the Professional edition for $399.99 (everything).
