Well, for the extra skydrive space I would upload more photos, makes it really easy to share baby scan photos with all the relatives without clogging everyones inboxes and syncing between my pc, surface tablet and windows phone. Also would help with sharing extra OneNote notebooks with my best mate who currently lives in London who is getting us to help with tasks for his upcoming wedding

and the Skype minutes, just changed our home broadband to a naked plan so being able to make the occasional call with not having to use a work phone would be handy. And also calling the previously mentioned best mate when he doesn't log into Skype at the allotted time

I would use the Skydrive to keep my Android devices synced.

I have family moving overseas this month so the Skype would be great to keep in touch with them.

Would use all SkyDrive space to back up my university/personal documents. 

Starting to acquire a large amount of documents... 

The Office 2013 would obviously be invaluable for a student Smile

The Skydrive storage is going to be for NOT using Mega!

HTPC: Antec NSK2480B case, AMD A4-5300 CPU, Asus F2A85-M LE mobo, WD Caviar Green 64Mb 2TB HDD, HD Homerun, Win7 Home Premium, RAM 1600Mhz 4Gb.

Q: What would I do with the 20GB Storage?
A: That would be storing my school, and work related documents and possibly act as a temporary family vault in case other file locker dead.

Q: 60 minutes of Skype call?
A: That would be my family who live 10,000Km away from me Laughing

The Skype minutes would be very handy for calling a friend in Souther Italy who has patchy connection, and the 20GB storage would be a third offsite backup for my critical files - winning would see me a step closer to following best practice for backups. :)

To be honest, this whole package sounds like a good deal for me... I don't currently have office at all on my PC, and need to to get a copy.

The skype minute would surely come in handy with calling a few of my friends who moved back to England a little while ago. I always complain we don't talk enough, so this would certainly give me no excuse not to!

60 free minutes on Skype would be useful to call the family overseas. As for Skydrive, I mainly use it to backup random personal coding projects.

I've never made a proper skype call before. Could be fun. Extra skydrive storage is always welcome :)

More SkyDrive space for me would mean I could possibly ditch SugarSync, Box, SpiderOak, Cubby and Dropbox and just use the one cloud storage system.
