I just built a new computer which is my 4th computer and I have 2010 MS Office on my other 3 computers from a 3 user install so now I'm told I have to buy MS office single user for $139 and if my new computer goes bad for whatever reason I just lost $139, does that sound about right?

What version of MS Office 2010? Home & Student, Home & Professional or Professional?

But in any event, a fourth license for a fourth install without uninstalling it on an existing machine is correct. The only way you could put it on your new machine without buying another license is to uninstall it from an existing one. A license for 3 machines means just that, 3 machines.

Would something like Office 365 work, or is complete offline functionality mandatory?

I called Microsoft and got my MS Office 2010 off one computer and put it on my new build but it took an hour but it's worth it because I saved $139
