Office 2019 is now available for Windows and Mac

What do you need to know about office 2019 for Windows and MAC?

Microsoft recently released Office 2019, the latest version of its Windows and Mac office suite, with useful new features slotted almost seamlessly into the familiar interface. A distraction-free mode for Word, better pivot tables for Excel, and better graphics and support for digital pencils for PowerPoint are just a few of the many tweaks and improvements to the venerable Office. While these aren’t huge upgrades to the suite, they could be big productivity boons to the right users.

The Different Versions of Microsoft Office 2019: Which Is Right For You?

  • Version #1: Office Home and Student 2019

If you need Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for school or home use, then this is the version for you. Take this version if you’re not worried about getting the latest software updates from Microsoft, and the current features are more than enough for your needs. Microsoft is selling the Office Home and Student 2019 version for only $149.99

  • Version #2: Office Home and Business 2019

According to Litmus Labs, Apple iPhone and Gmail have the lion’s share of the email client market with 27% each (out of 945 email opens). However, Outlook occupied the #3 spot at 9%; this translates to over 85 million emails opens done on Outlook.

If you’re one of those who absolutely need to use Outlook in your workflow, then this is the version of Office 2019 you need to get. Also, you still get Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote with this Office 2019 version, but the extra $100 will get you a licensed copy of Outlook. The listed price of Office Home and Business 2019 on Microsoft’s website is $249.99.

  • Version #3: Office Professional 2019

At $190 more than the second version (Office Professional 2019 costs $439.99), this is the most expensive version of Office 2019. For the extra fee, you get access to 2 more apps – Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Access. The bad news is these apps are strictly PC or Windows only. 

What will Office 2019 include?

It’s less confusing for Mac users through – the OneNote 2019 Mac app will only unlock stickers. For Office 365 subscribers on Mac, you’ll get the same stickers, but you’ll also automatically receive any future updates.

Should You Buy Microsoft Office 2019?

Microsoft made substantial updates to its core Office 2019 apps, most notably, PowerPoint, Word, and Excel. However, all the features baked into your Office 2019 apps are all you’re going to get.

Microsoft is doing a great job with their frequent updates to the Office 365 ecosystem. In fact, most of the new features I’ve listed in this article were released to Office 365 subscribers months, or even years, ago! They’re well ahead of the pack. And the truth is, by the time you purchase your copy of Office 2019, Office 365 subscribers may already be enjoying new features which you’re never going to get.

So, the choice is yours. Get Microsoft Office 2019 for a relatively affordable one-time fee, or subscribe to Office 365 and get regular software updates from Microsoft.

Let's Sea What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
