I want to purchase an Office 365 home license. On pricespy there is a product called "Office 365 Home Premium" (6GQ-00017), which is cheaper than purchasing directly from Microsoft. It's usually listed with Office 2013, 20GB of "skydrive" storage, no Access, and various other differences. I'm guessing this is just outdated info, and the product would be identical to "Office Home" in practice.

Can someone who has purchased 6GQ-00017 verify that it does indeed get you all the current 365 office programs, 1TB onedrive storage, 5+5+5 device installations etc. that Microsoft now advertise on their site?

For starters you wont get applications for 2013, thats gone. Its Now 2016.

Yes you can have it on 5 devices, you can remove any device from the licencing and add another as long as its no more than 5 in total.

What ever MS advertise is what it will be, wouldn't go by outdated sites on pricespy. ;)

365 Personal gives one PC licence, Premium is five. I use premium but don't get more than you need.

Actually personal will give two PCs. One desktop and one laptop.

I read - 1 PC or Mac, 1 tablet and 1 phone. If I'm wrong I'm wondering how they can tell the difference between a desktop and a laptop?

Who knows. I've been doing it that way for nearly 2 years now. Now is a Microsoft Surface tablet running full Windows 10 with keyboard a laptop or tablet??
