    First time post here, hope I follow all the rules.

    Looking to acquire MS Office 2016 Professional. I have 4 computers, 3 tablets, 3 phones in the house. I have read different things about buying the software vs subscribing in terms of how many devices the software could be installed on. 2 computers use Windows 7, 1 uses Windows 8.1 and 1 uses Windows 10. Seeking advice/referrals on the best/most cost effective way to get MS Office on at least all the computers. All computers currently use MS Office 2007. Thanks.

    i would subscribe to put a standalone version of office on all those machines would be expensive

    Assuming and average price of £120 for Office Home & Student
    4 computers = £480 and does not include a tablet at that price

    the subscription service at £80 per year and you can add to PCs and tablets upto 5 devices - so thats 6years to get a saving - And you are likely to change machines in that time

    Also with the subscription you get the FULL version and all products (outlook, publisher - which would cost £250 )

    unless you can find a multi-license version to run on 3 or more PCs
    then the subscription maybe the way to go.

    Unless you really need to upgrade to Office 2016, what's wrong with staying with Office 2007 and saving yourself a lot of money?
