Excel 2013 has a brand new look and new features that let you get away from walls of numbers and make better business decisions.
Flash Fill. Easily reformat and rearrange your data to gain new insight. Excel learns and recognizes your pattern and auto-completes the remaining data for you. No formulas or macros required.
Recommended Pivot Table. Perform complex analyses quickly. Excel summarizes your data with previews of various pivot-table options, so you can compare them and select the option that tells your story best.
Quick Analysis. Discover and compare different ways to represent your data visually. When you see the one that shows off your data best, apply formatting, sparklines, charts, and tables with a single click.
Chart Formatting Control. Imagine the freedom to fine-tune the look and feel of your charts quickly. Change the title, layout, and other chart elements—all from a new and more interactive formatting interface.
Simplified Sharing. Share workbooks with ease and confidence. You can be sure that you're all tracking only the latest version, because your presentations are saved online on OneDrive or SharePoint by default. Just send everyone a link to the same file.
Post to Social Network. Get a lot of feedback fast. Share selected portions of your spreadsheets on the web by posting them on your social network pages.

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.
