    Does it include the full suite of Office programs?

    It does. The only difference is that it can only be installed on one system.

    Not enough of a price difference to make it worthwhile. Of course, if you only have 1 PC…

    If you do not wish to use their programs in the cloud, but still would like to have it on the computer, is that possible?

      I use Office 365 and I don’t have to put anything on the cloud I don’t want to. The programs reside on my computer, as do my files. I have the option of saving files to the cloud, as well as using Web Office Apps, but it’s not required.
