  • Laura Upton

    I use Word and Excel to organize my grocery lists and coupons. We use PowerPoint for presentations at church. I’d most likely give this to my niece who is a senior in high school, because she could really get a lot of use out of it!

  • I love that it includes power point. My husband always needs to use power point for lectures. I also like that the full screen option can block out interruptions. I did not know it could do that.

  • Gretchen Gerth

    I love Excel, I like all of the programs available in Office, but I love Excel.

  • D Schmidt

    Love the OneNote option because it provides one place you can compile information but is also searchable.

  • I like access for the ability to quickly update thousands of records and save your steps so things can be repeated.
