Microsoft Office recommendation

I searched and couldn't find anything about this. So, I bought a new laptop, first one I have with Windows 10. I need these Office tools: Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook. What is the best option that I have right now to get this? Office 365 Personal? Home? Business?

If you're just using it on one account, I think personal would be fine. Otherwise, Home for up to 6 users. This link compares the options:

Re: Microsoft Office recommendation

Any of the Office 365 versions are priced per year. If you are looking for a one time purchase (1 computer only), you want Office 2019 Home and Business. It's currently $219 on Amazon. If you think you will want it on more than 1 computer then the Office 365 version is the way to go.
