Office 2016 for Mac now available as stand-alone software for $149

Office 2016 for the Mac launched in July, but only subscribers to Office 365 could access the new version of the productivity software suite. That has changed as Microsoft is allowing Mac owners to purchase and download Office Home & Student 2016 as a stand-alone product for $149.99.

The purchase offers users the rights to install Office 2016 on just one Mac, and it also comes with 15GB of OneDrive cloud storage. Users who sign up for an Office 365 Personal subscrption for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year can get Office 365 on one Mac or Windows PC and also on one tablet and one smartphone, along with 1TB of OneDrive storage. Office 365 Home, for $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year, expands the install number to up to five Windows or Macs, along with five tablets and five smartphones.
