Before we talk about the Office 2019 System Requirements, let me first clarify what you get with this release.
Office 2019 is now available on a preview for commercial customers for both Windows and Mac. We do not have a lot of information available on the release dates yet since we are still away from the final release of the product. We expect the version to debut sometime in the latter half of 2018, subject to change. So, how does it differ from a traditional O365 subscription? Well, if you are an existing Office 365 ProPlus customer, you should already be on the latest version of the Office build. Office 2019, on the other hand, is a one-time purchase which gives you access to the 32-bit & 64-bit Windows desktop applications. So, in essence, Office 2019 is a perpetual upgrade to Office 2016.
This release of Office 2019 is ideal for disconnected PCs and Laptops which are not connected to the internet or are installed in a corporate environment.
Note: Commercial Previews are for Microsoft’s Volume Licensing Customers only!

With a onetime purchase, you will get security and stability updates, plus bug fixes. What you do not receive is feature upgrades. You can visit the official Microsoft Office Blog for more updates regarding this release.
For regular automatic feature updates, we recommend going with the subscription-based O365 subscription. For an overview, see below:
