Office Home and Student or Home and Business are still standalone products that don't have a yearly subscription.

I don't know how much the subscription makes sense for most people, especially the base Personal eidtion, although the Home version that includes 6 installs is handy for people with multiple devices or family members. Or people that also want the OneDrive subscription for online storage, I guess.

Yeah either 1. Copy the CD to a USB hdd, 2. Network the computers and copy the CD to the Laptop, or 3.

What version of Office?

If it's Office 2013 or later, it's tied to your Microsoft Account, so you can just log into your account and download the installer:

If it's Office 2010, you can download a copy by entering your product key:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...ownload/office

For earlier versions of Office, you'll need to copy the CD contents in some way to your new laptop.
