Thinking about shelling out for an ARM-based Windows 8 (otherwise known as Windows RT) tablet? Maybe the Surface variant  or a tablet from a different vendor perhaps. Then I’m sure you will be glad to hear Microsoft has officially announced Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 will come preinstalled on all Windows RT tablets.
Office Home and Student 2013 on Windows RT tablets will be the fully functional version of Office Home and Student 2013. In other words, you can expect to enjoy fully functional Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote. And since it will be preinstalled on Windows RT tablets, you won’t have to pay a cent aside from purchasing a tablet, of course. Yes, that means Microsoft is giving you Office Home and Student 2013 for free.
Huzzah, friends. Maybe Windows RT tablets won’t be so bad after all you skeptical skeptics.
