Microsoft Office without subscription?

  SURVEY 13:06 16 Feb 2015

Iam thinkig of buying a small notebook running Windows as I require that operating system to edit a particular website. I presently use MS Office 2013 and need Word, Excel and Publisher. I understand that I cannot transfer this from my present laptop to a notebook. Can one actually purchase this outright or is MS now forcing us to buy via 365 on amonthly or yearly subscription?

Looks as though Office 365 is an annual subscription, but Office 2013 is a once-only payment.

An example here.

Blimey Bumpkin - that's a deal and a half!

Possibly too good to be true though.

NOT dealt with them myself!! The link put my Not on the bottom of the page, I hope that has not mislead OP.

Having had a closer look at this, I think I would steer clear.

Thanks Bumpkin but seems and probably is too good to be true! Yes 2013 would be fine.

Don't see why you cannot transfer as long as its removed from old machine it should activate on new machine.
