Online Microsoft Office

May be you neglect the online version of Microsoft Office because you are using offline version but I recommend that use the online version if you are working on any important topic because all data saved on drive so in case if you forget your laptop you can still access your data from anywhere. Most of you using Google Drive but I think it has less feature. You can check yourself & compare the both.
