Setting up a new Computer


my new Spectre X360 will arrive today. I recall Paul recommending setting it up with a local account so you can change the computer name to something sensible in the MSA once you attach it because the name in the cloud cannot be changed. I think this has been addressed now, so is it still recommended to set up using a local account?

I am considered locking it to Windows Store Apps and wonder if the MS Office apps have yet to be made available through the store for Office 365 subscribers?

thanks for any responses – always exciting starting fresh with a new computer


PS – this was an unplanned purchase to replace my Surface Pro 3 that one day decided to not charge anymore. It fell off a cliff with no indications that it was about to fail.
