office 2013 for laptop

I have no computer tech experience and need to know if I can download and use Office 2013 on my laptop that is currently running windows 7. Can i just purchase an activation key for this purpose?

Hi buttercup12, Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You can purchase Office 2013 on line & download it as well. Have a look at this website & read through the various versions that are available.
Also is you follow through on the various "Learn More" links you can also find out what system requirements are needed.
As you are running Windows 7 you should be OK. But as your System Specs don't really show all your computers details you will need to check the Office system requirements to see if your computer meets them.

As I am in Australia I have tried to get the Microsoft USA details for you so I hope it works.

Thanks for the quick reply! I will check the website out and see what my options are. Do you know if i can purchase something like this on my desktop PC and transfer to my laptop? My desktop is only running Windows Vista and that's not compatable with Office 2013. I don't have internet acess with my laptop. Any ideas?

As far as I know MS Office 2013 is not available on DVD or CD. Only the on line download versions are available.

I think you may run into a lot of trouble trying to download office 2013 to your Vista computer & then copying it & transferring it to your laptop.
Office 2013 versions are what is described as "Click to Run", which means they install onto the computer as the download is occurring, so this will probably not work on your Vista computer.

Have you considered upgrading your Vista computer to Windows 7. I have included an MS website so you can check that out & see if your Vista computer is compatible. I did a Vista to 7 upgrade a few years ago & it was very easy & straight forward & I did not lose any already installed programs.
