Windows 11 Pro and Office Professional boxes
Microsoft/CNET

The costs of upgrading to the latest Microsoft software can start to add up pretty quick. If you want to equip your PC with Windows 11 Pro, it'll cost you $200 if you purchase it through Microsoft directly. And if you also want an Office Pro 2021 license so you can use productivity tools like Word and Excel, it'll run you another $440. Or you could take advantage of this incredible StackSocial deal and score both for just $50. Just note that there's no set expiration for this deal, so there's no guaranteeing how long it will be available. We'd recommend getting your in sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out on these savings. 

Windows 11 Pro offers some additional features you won't find on the base version, including Microsoft Remote Desktop, BitLocker device encryption, Windows Sandbox, Hyper-V, Azure Active Directory and much more. You'll receive an activation key that you can use on up to three devices. Not all computers are compatible, so if you're considering upgrading, be sure to check out the system requirements before you buy. 

Your purchase comes with a lifetime license to Office Professional 2021 as well, which includes popular programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, OneNote and more. With a single one-time payment, you'll retain lifetime access on the installed PC, which will save you a ton over the recurring charges you'll accrue via a Microsoft 365 subscription and offers you more than the free online version of Microsoft Office. However, it's worth noting that you'll be limited to installing Office on just one computer and the "lifetime" part of the license therefore refers to the lifetime of the machine you install it on.

If you don't need the Office apps in this bundle, you can grab this Windows 11 Pro deal offering just the operating system upgrade for $27. But for the extra $23 and access to essential Microsoft apps you may find that this bundle is a better value.
