    • Word 2013 lets you create professional-quality documents.  New feature lets you open and edit a PDF document, while the new Read Mode offers easier on-screen reading. Object Zoom allows easy zooming in on tables, charts and images. And templates and tools let you add polish and style to your documents.
    • Excel 2013 offers powerful tools to work with data.  Lets you explore, analyze and visualize data to gain new insights.
