    Rules for Office 365 Business or Personal?

    A friend who owns a small business has decided to subscribe to Office 365. I've built for him an Access database, so he needs more than the Office 2013 Business version on his computer. His business does not need a dedicated server or a SharePoint site. Is there any legal or other reason he should NOT subscribe to the Office 365 Personal version? He'll have just two laptops—one at each of his two locations. The Personal version allows for up to five devices, so that's not a problem. What other concerns do we need to address, if any?

    Might look at this:

    Seems the Home version is for up to 5 devices plus others.

    The number of devices may be a deciding factor. Over the years most times the EULA specifies one workstation and one portable device controlled by the same person, don't know if the Personal version will consider the second Notebook/Laptop as the tablet, I'd think it would work.

    Office Personal does not entitle him to use Office for commercial purposes, so that means he'll have to go with Business edition:
