    I just replaced our 2 desktops and 1 laptop with new Dells running windows 8.1. I see MS Office 2010 for 3 pc's (family pack) for sale on ebay. The seller states that it was used but no longer needed. Would I be able to install this on our new computers? I'm referring to the CD type with activation key.

    Any opinions or advice where to purchase MS Office 2010 for 3 PC's?

    Thanks

    It's for home use. I'm suspicious of using Ebay for software purchases, but I thought I would ask. Maybe amazon would be a safer purchase. Also, I'm going from Office 2000 on the old XP's to Office 2010 on windows 8.1. I thought buying 2010 would be better for us instead of the yearly subscription for 2013.
    Any opinions?

    Microsoft Office 2013 is available without yearly subscriptions and/or Office 365:

    As for 2010 vs 2013 - it really doesn't matter all that much. I have 2010 running both at work and at home and it does what I need with no problems. Some of my colleagues actually prefer 2010 because of the interface changes that were made with 2013 (it got a pretty big overhaul).

    I also wasn't able to find a 3-pack for 2013 but was able to find one for 2010. That may also weigh in on your decision.
