    Just 60 minutes? That’s a bit cheap!

    do I need to be on line in order to use this office? What if I’m not on line can I still use Office?

    • Chung-Ping Hung

      You can use it without internet connection at least for a while. The functional components of Office are in your hard drive already. It only checks the license online once for a while. It’s pretty like Windows Activation for shorter term.
