Here’s how Microsoft 365 can turbo-charge your productivity and help you make the most of your new laptop:

      • Always access your latest files
        Your applications integrate with OneDrive, so you can save documents directly to the cloud, and make changes that instantly synchronise on up to five devices. This means the latest version of your documents can always be accessed on any device, from any location.
      • Work across five devices
        Microsoft 365 lets each user work across up to five devices with fully featured apps on your PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets – or log into the web apps on your browser to search through and edit your documents in the cloud, with no need for any extra software.
      • Stress-free backup
        Everything saved in your OneDrive is stored securely in the cloud, so you never have to worry about losing a crucial document. And it’s not just for files – your Windows Desktop, Documents and other personal folders are automatically backed up too, so you can protect photos, videos, downloads and anything else you like!
      • Roll back at any time
        OneDrive lets you easily review and recover up to 25 previous versions of each file, so you’re always protected against accidentally erasing or overwriting important data. (Space isn’t an issue either, as past versions of files don’t count against your storage limit.)
      • Seamless auto-sync
        Short on disk space? No problem! Using OneDrive means you need only download the files you want to work on. Auto-sync ensures your latest edits are always available and up to date, while optional offline access lets you keep key documents on your device, so you can work without an internet connection – and sync later – for maximum flexibility.
      • Easy sharing
        OneDrive makes sharing documents a breeze. With two clicks you can create a live link that allows colleagues to access selected folders and files, with either read-only or full editing access.
      • Collaborate live with your colleagues
        With Microsoft 365 you can work together with your colleagues in the cloud. There’s no need to send documents back and forth as friends and co-workers can all access and update cloud documents simultaneously or the use-anywhere browser-based web apps.
      • 1TB of cloud storage
        Microsoft 365 comes with a massive terabyte of OneDrive storage for each user. It’s cheaper than rivals like Dropbox and Google Drive – and it’s the only cloud service that’s fully integrated with a native Office suite.

Those aren’t the only benefits of Microsoft 365. The full editions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint give you unmatched productivity with all the latest innovations and features.

Choose Microsoft 365 to make the most of your new Windows PC – and save £20 on a one-year Personal subscription when you buy with selected laptops online at currys.co.uk, using the code PERSONAL20 at checkout.
