A renewed 2022 computer and Microsoft Office for life
This HP EliteDesk 800G1 Desktop Computer is a Microsoft Authorized Refurbished desktop(opens in a new tab), meaning it has been professionally renewed, performs like new, and it has a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro. It features an Intel Quad-Core i5-4570 processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and a 250GB SSD. This computer is small and may work well in a compact office environment or dorm room.

Your purchase also comes with a lifetime license to Microsoft Office Professional 2021. Pick one computer to install Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams (Free version), OneNote, Publisher, and Access for life.

Note the difference between Microsoft Office 2021 and Microsoft 365(opens in a new tab) because it might save you money. Microsoft 365 requires a monthly payment, but it can be installed on up to five computers at once, and it comes with a few extra apps. For families with multiple devices, 365 may be the way to go. But for solo users who want a one-time payment for secure apps you can rely on that won’t change suddenly, Microsoft Office could be a better choice.
