Microsoft Office 2013 or Office 365

The Microsoft Office suite is an essential collection of desktop applications that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and much more. If you're considering purchasing or upgrading to Office 2013, you'll need to compare different pricing options to help choose the Office that's right for you.

Below: The different suites to choose from

There is the usual raft of suite versions to choose from starting with Office Home & Student 2013, this includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, but if you also want to be able to use Outlook you must look to Office Home & Business 2013.
Top of the range is Office Professional 2013 which includes Publisher and Access. 
Note: Suite components can also be bought as individual apps.

 Office 365 –(office on demand) his is where the big changes are to be found. Rather than buying software to keep, here you pay a monthly or annual subscription; essentially renting the software.
But this is far from being the only difference. While Office 2013 can only be installed on one computer, Office 365 can be used on up to five PCs (and Macs) for one price.
There are other versions available for businesses
 Whether you are working with one PC or five, you pay the same price, so this is great option for households with several computers. There’s a strong online focus with Office 365 and a subscription also includes 20GB of SkyDrive storage and, perhaps unsurprisingly following Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype, 60 minutes of Skype calls per month.
Office on demand drawbacks :-
Office on Demand plays nice only with PCs running Windows 7 or 8. It also requires the PC to have a fairly modern browser: Internet Explorer 9 or later, Mozilla Firefox 12 or later, Apple Safari 5 or later, or Google Chrome 18 or later.
