Can you suggest what is the cheapest place to get basic powerpoint for win7 home. (office is not required; pp alone will do).

this user has already used pp before and not too computer savvy and hence wants to continue to use the same without wanting to try open source..

thanks.

I would suggest purchasing Office 2010 or 2013...paying for just PowerPoint is a bit crazy. Maybe the user can get a discount via his/her employer? Not a big differenc between 10 and 13, either.

As well as cost considerations some things in PPT need Word and Excel.

In looking for the "cheapest place" to buy software, I recommend exercising caution. Many of the "cheap" places on the Internet are selling illegal software...I've heard of many stories where serial numbers/registration codes do not work and the sellers do not respond to refund requests. So, bottom line, be careful...buy software only from highly reputable sites, such as Amazon and Newegg, both excellent suggestions by @tailoreddigital.

Re your question, "is it a steep curve between 2010 and 2013?", my opinion is no...anyone who has already used PP2010 should be able to come up to speed quickly on PP2013. There's a bit of a learning curve, but I wouldn't call it steep. Regards, Joe

You asked if I would "recommend" that seller and the answer is no, but only because I have never dealt with that seller. However, based on the seller's large number of transactions (74,372), very high positive feedback rating (99.9%), and receipt of the Top Rated Plus seal, I think they are almost surely legitimate and I would not hesitate to give them a try. One caveat, though, on that product selection: the "Home and Student" edition may not be used for commercial, non-profit, or revenue-generating activities. So if the user is in a business, this edition is not legal. You may download the license agreement here:

You might look into Office 365 Home Premium. $99 / year or $10 / month. It's not the cheapest, but it might be a good option still because you get 5 installs with it and you get more than just PPT.

Just a thought.
