    I have Office Pro Plus 2010 and 2013, will install Outlook and Excel on a i5-128 when it arrives.
    I use 2010 on Desktop, but pretty sure 2013 has a smaller footprint so thought I'd use it on Pro3.

    Any suggestions/advice/warnings/thoughts or other cool comments appreciated.

    You definitely want to install Office 2013 and enable Touch Mode....

    Office 2013 will do it all for you. Touch mode is a cool feature, too. Makes Excel, for example, much easier to use, even when using a mouse.

    Why don't you use 2013 on your desktop?

    There are some changes with the menus, but it's better software.

    I have used it - like Outlook 2010 better for no good reason to be honest - have 2013 so can load that up should the desire arise...
