Microsoft Office 2013, Office 365: 10 Features That Make It a Smart Buy
Microsoft has made big waves in the productivity market with new Office 2013 and Office 365, a cloud-based platform that will allow users to perform work and do all the things they would normally do in an offline environment. Office 2013, Microsoft argues, is the productivity suite that so many of its customers have been waiting for throughout the years. And in some ways, the company might be right. The interface really is easier to use, and the new payment option for home users seals the purchase deal for some folks. But does it make sense to buy Office 2013 now?

So, before making the decision on whether the software is right or wrong for someone, it's best for them to take a look at it to see if the new features are important enough to them to make it worth the cost.
