We bought my daughter a new Lenovo 15" Laptop, ThinkPad, Windows 8.1. It was on sale for a student discount. The purchasing doesn't end there, there are many Microsoft software to choose from to have her computer going with Word. Which one do you think best suits her computer needs? Most of them are 1-year subscriptions, and very expensive. Would you recommend yearly subscriptions? Or the once-off buy and download, and regular software updates? I don't know what to ask. But I hope you understand what I'm trying to get at. Thanks.
