I ONLY want MS word:(

Hello there MS Office Board.

I need to get my hands MS Word.
But the "problem" i face is that i can only get MS Word by buying the MS Office package (that i dont want or need) from what i understand.

And how do i know if i can use the lisence key on different PCs.
Lets say i instal it on my main PC, and then after a few weeks or so i uninstal it. Can i then install it on my Laptop?

You can buy Word separately but it's bloody expensive. Google searching my be your best option for a better deal, eBay sellers may even have product keys cheaper but that's just a guess. Even look for an older copy of Word, say 2010 (better than 2013 in my opinion) see if you can pick that up any cheaper.

You can, if the copy is decommissioned on the first PC it was installed on prior to installing it elsewhere.

Do you really need to buy word or will just using the free online version work for your needs?

There are also other free alternatives - Free MS Office Clone WPS / KINGSOFT OFFICE

I've migrated to the free LibreOffice to replace my old Office 2003. Primarily I use the Wordprocessor application.

I'm using this on both Win 7 and Win 8.1

"You can, if the copy is decommissioned on the first PC it was installed on prior to installing it elsewhere." Not sure that's exactly true.

I'm building up a new desktop system to replace my existing desktop and re-installing all the software on the new desktop exactly as it was on the old desktop. Since I'm upgrading the OS, I can't just clone the drives. I have two separate licenses for Office Professional 2010 Plus, one for my desktop and one for my laptop. Microsoft says you can install Office Professional 2010 Plus on two different computers that you personally own and they give the EXAMPLE of "one desktop and one laptop".

When I tried to install Office Professional 2010 Plus on the new desktop using the old desktop license, it said that I couldn't because the license was already in use. That's true because the old desktop is still in operation. Then I tried installing it using the laptop license and it accepted that with no problem. So, it seems that Microsoft does allow the installation and use of Office Professional 2010 Plus on two different personal systems at the same time, but their EXAMPLE of a "desktop and a laptop" is really a hard and fast rule. I can only assume that Microsoft can sense the difference between a mobile-class and a desktop-class processor.

My copy of Office 2010 is on two desktops as we speak, my main rig and my backup rig. It's also been on two other old PCs prior to these two as well, only one of those four in total was a laptop.
