PowerPoint 2013 has a brand new look. It’s cleaner and primed for use on tablets,so you can swipe and tap your way through presentations.
Slide Zoom. Direct your audience’s attention right to your point. Zoom in on a diagram, chart, or graphic with a couple of clicks, and zoom out just as smoothly.
Slide Navigator. Quickly switch slides—in or out of sequence—from a visual grid viewable at a glance. While in Presenter View, your audience sees only the slide you’ve selected.
Alignment Guides. Add a designer’s touch. Intuitively align shapes, text boxes, videos on your slides.
Merge Shapes. Create your own shapes and customized icons with the Union, Combine, Fragment, Intersect, and Subtract tools.
Simplified Sharing. Share work with confidence. Your presentations are saved online on OneDrive or SharePoint by default.**
Reply Comment. Keep track of the conversation. Place and reply comments right next to the slide area you’re discussing, so everyone can readily see who replied to whom, and when.

A touch-enabled device is required to use any multi-touch functionality. However, all features and functionality are always available by using a keyboard, mouse, or other standard or accessible input device. Note that new touch features are optimized for use with Windows 8.
Some functionality may vary, based on the system configuration. Some features may require additional or advanced hardware or server connectivity.
Note: System requirements are rounded up to the nearest 0.5 GB, to be conservative. For example, if we measure an application’s required hard disk space to be 1.99 GB, we recommend 2.5 GB of disk space. Our hard disk system requirements are intentionally larger than the actual disk space usage of the software.
A graphics processor helps increase the performance of certain features, such as drawing tables in Excel 2013 or transitions, animations, and video integration in PowerPoint 2013. Use of a graphics processor with Office 2013 requires a Microsoft DirectX 10-compliant graphics processor that has 64 MB of video memory. These processors were widely available in 2007. Most computers that are available today include a graphics processor that meets or exceeds this standard. However, if you or your users do not have a graphics processor, you can still run Office 2013.
