      I have been looking to get office for my PC’s I’m not too happy with the free office programs out there that you can download, i like to stay with Microsoft products. So what I’ve seen on the internet there are a lot of sites that offer ISO but no key’s, i see Amazon offer’s download’s for office that are low prices $8.99 and others like $9.95 but I’m questioning the legal stuff and a legal key to activate. Can these places be safe to download office if I don’t want to spend hundred’s of dollars? Any feedback will be great.

      If the prices sound too good to be true, it is most likely bogus software. Amazon doesn’t keep a very good eye on the third-party vendors.

      All of the single payment non-subscription Office SKUs are licensed for one PC only. So, if you are interested in Office Pro on multiple PCs for multiple people you should consider an Office 365 Home subscription. If you have only one person on multiple devices you should consider an Office 365 Personal subscription. You can search around a little and find decent bargains on Office 365 SKUs.

        current offerings.

        I suppose it’s not impossible that someone would still have an old unopened Office 2010 multiple-PC retail box for sale somewhere.

        I’d not recommend getting Office 2010 these days though, but…

        With these, do check the EULA very carefully – whichever version it is that applies in your case. There’s an interesting restriction clause in the English version that seems to have become rather stricter in at least some translations.

      That’s the single-user Personal edition, I assume?
      I top-up my 6-user Home edition via Amazon whenever the annual price drops to $79—CamelX3 alerts me. With 4-5 of us on it, that’s $16-20 per person per year.

      My default attitude to $10 Office licenses is “Any reason I should trust this?”
