Takeaway

For those who are Power Users or will use Access or Skype, and can get it at the discounted price, Microsoft Office Professional Plus is the must-have buy.

For those who can get the discounted price and have no need for Access or Skype, the cheaper Microsoft Office Standard is the one to get. It is certainly very popular with those in the know.

For those who are not eligible for the discounted price and need Office for work, the likely choice is the popular Office Home and Business. Only if you really need Access is it worth forking out another £100 for Office Professional.

The cheapest edition of Office, Home and Student is ideal for homework and personal stuff such as writing CVs with Word, keeping on top of personal finances with Excel, and some schools like homework done in PowerPoint. It also includes the very useful OneNote.

Is it legit?

"For those buying online, Tekgia is almost unique in offering the full package of (i) software, (ii) product key, (iii) Microsoft email confirming the license is genuine, and (iv) a personal Microsoft account showing the product key and license. Too many others offer only half the package. You get software and an iffy product key. But that's it. There's no Microsoft confirmation that it's legit. And no personal Microsoft account."

Some prices are just too good to be true. But how can you tell if it really is a bargain or if it is a rip-off? Well, you can use PC World or Microsoft Store to give you some idea of the kind of prices you should be paying.

Additionally, we have a web page called 7 Tips on How To Avoid Buying Fake Microsoft Office Software which gives you the basics so that you can avoid being ripped off when buying Microsoft Office online.

Finally, each year we have to pass an examination by Microsoft to be duly authorised as an Education Partner and specialist.

Nine important reasons why this edition of Office 2016 Professional Plus is such a good deal

"Being able to reinstall the software again after the computer crashed, as well as use the product key again, saved me having to go out and buy another one."


1. Windows 10 This Office 2016 Professional Plus runs on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7. But it does not run on Windows Vista and Windows XP. For Windows Vista and Windows XP, get Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus.

2. Choice of 32-bit or 64-bit Ms Office 2016 Professional Plus is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. You don't have to choose when you buy. You choose when you download from the secure Microsoft website.

What is more, if you, say, download the 32-bit version and decide later to try the 64-bit version, you can go back and download that one and install it. And if, later still, you yearn for the 32-bit version, simply return to the secure Microsoft website and download it.

3. You can transfer it to a replacement computer Not all Microsoft Office editions allow you to transfer them to new computers. But this one does. With this Office 2016 Professional Plus, you can remove it from your old machine and install it on your new one.

4. Install on two computers You can install this Office software on two computers, as long as the two computers are used primarily by one user and at least one of the computers is a laptop.

5. Gives you peace of mind Do you sometimes lose things? Well, with this Professional Plus edition of Office 2016, Microsoft keep your product key (which you need to activate the software) secure for you so that if you ever lose it, you can get it back again from their secure website. Of if you lose the software, you can always download it again from the Microsoft secure website.

6. License comes from Microsoft This makes this Office Professional Plus ideal for software audits as no one can dispute its legality.

7. Lifetime License You pay once for the software and you can use it forever.

8. Available as download and on disc Although the software comes as a download we can if you wish, download it for you, burn it onto a disc and mail it out to you. We won't charge for this, by the way.

9. Free upgrade Includes free upgrade to Microsoft Office 2019 Professional Plus.
