Office Professional 2013

All of Microsoft's applications for use on one PC.

Office Professional 2013 is designed to help you create and communicate faster with time saving features and a clean, modern look. Plus, you can save your documents in the cloud on SkyDrive and access them virtually anywhere.

What’s new in this release of Office?

The 2013 versions of familiar 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.

Subscribers will also receive future rights to version upgrades as well as per-use rights across multiple PCs or Macs and select mobile devices.1 Note: The Office applications you can use across PCs, Macs and other devices vary by platform.

1Visit www.office.com/information for a current list of devices. Internet connection required. Internet and mobile telephone usage charges may apply.

What is the difference between the Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

Microsoft Office is still the name Microsoft uses for its familiar productivity software. Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. All Office 2013 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC.

Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

What it includes:

  • Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, and Publisher.
  • Office on one PC for business use.
  • One time purchase for the life of your PC; non-transferrable.
  • 7 GB of online storage in SkyDrive.
  • Free Office Web Apps1 for accessing, editing, and sharing documents.
  • An improved user interface optimized for a keyboard, pen, or touchscreen.

  1. Once you have completed your software download purchase at Amazon.com, you must click the "Continue to Office.com" button to get your software.

If you have to pay the full retail price, Office 2013 does not offer enough improvements to take on the hassle of moving to the new version (which I deliberately did not call "upgrading"). If you are already using the Office 2010 suite, deliberate carefully about both the cash outlay and the tweaking it will take to get you back to the customizations you like.

I installed Office 2013 Professional on an ASUS laptop computer with a recently re-installed Windows 7 (Home Premium) OS, a 1.3 GHZ processor and 4 GB RAM (64-bit environment).

At installation, I was promoted to first remove my existing Office 2010 suite. After doing so, installation of Office 2013 took approximately 10 minutes. Although cosmetic changes appear in the user interface (mostly in a "flattening" of controls on the toolbars), the overall presentation will be familiar to users of Office 2010.

Hint: if you have many commands placed in your Office 2010 applications Quick Access Toolbars, export them before you uninstall. You can later import them into the 2013 programs. Why this couldn't be scripted into the 2013 install process (along with removal of the earlier version) is another question.

Microsoft claims an array of new features in Office 2013. The biggest one that is readily apparent is that Microsoft would love for you to join them on the cloud via its online SkyDrive and Office 365 subscription services. Oh please. I already bought the productivity suite, and could have done without the additional marketing. Plus: every single time you look at the Office Ribbon, the big "Sign In" button will be visible on the right side. Bad idea, Office team: please don't add clutter to an already complicated user interface.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good for portable PCs February 4, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
If you're thinking of running Office on a portable PC, stick with 2010. While you may think you're buying a full retail copy of 2013, they've changed the licensing such that if your computer dies (dropped, spilled water on it, just expires) and you have to get a replacement, you CANNOT install the same copy of Office onto it. You have to buy Office all over again. Even if you've got an accident/damage protection plan on your laptop/notebook, you'll still have to fork out $400 for the privilege of reinstalling software you already bought. Outrageous!

1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable overly bright display options (lack there of) February 21, 2013
By wmstram
Platform for Display:PC Download
Just upgraded from 2010 Pro to 2013 pro. Bad move. Save, time, money, and your eyes and don't go to 2013. I agree with all of the other one star reviews here (and elsewhere).

First seems like MS is trying to create their own walled garden and collection of inmates like Apple. Nothing they offer is worth the price, or the discomfort I experienced with this product.

My big complaint, and for me a deal breaker, is the lack of a comfortable display theme. They only offer 3: White, Light Gray, Dark Gray. Don't be fooled. Dark Gray isn't at all dark. All the choices are overly bright, lack contrast, and are just hard to look at for any length of time. I've tried every combination of theme, brightness, and contrast on three different LED and laptop displays. I just can't work with this. If you own a business don't buy this. If I worked for you, I'd complain to OSHA. It's torture trying to use these screens. My eyes can't take it. The darker theme in 2010 worked well for me. Where did it go? This design choice made by MS is baffling and disappointing. Seems like a trivial fix for them, but reading 5 months worth of many complaints on the MS forums, it does not appear MS is going to respond. My response now is going to be to send it back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please don't buy it! You'll hate it. February 17, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
I have always been an avid Office fan. I bought 2013 to stay current - all I can say is DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. I wish I had read the reviews first. I'd give it 0 stars if I could - hate is too kind. If you have Office 2007 or Office 2010 - KEEP IT! There's virtually no benefit to 2013 and you'll hate it. Never mind you'll pay significantly more and get only one license.

I don't know who they left in charge of creating this abomination, but they didn't earn their executive salary or bonus. They should be fired!

Everything you know and love about the Office interface is practically gone. You get only 3 color schemes to pick from - none of which are tolerable. Visually it is so stark and minimal it's disturbing. It's hard to know exactly where you are in any of the programs. Outlook has the most changes - making darn near unusable. Outlook has long been my favorite. Work finally switched from Lotus Notes to Outlook a year back - I was thrilled. The look of this was so shocking that after a day I uninstalled it, and went back to my 2010 (of course MS won't refund my money either).

MS touts the cloud options but to most users that's not really going to benefit them. For business users it's going to be hugely disruptive to your productivity.

I'm going to use 2010 until they come out with something that is in the same line and worth me upgrading which may well be forever. Please don't make the same mistake I did. MS has stopped being about productivity and is now selling roadster products at Cadillac prices - it's all about the greed, not their consumers. Maybe I'll check out open source or some other office suite.
