To be honest, it really, REALLY, depends on if it actually came with the laptop when you bought it. there are those companies that have it pre-installed, some come witha CD, others that don't have it at all. So it all comes down to if the laptop is 'supposed' to come with MS OFFICE or not. Also, it wouldn't hurt at all to ask the sales person, from where you bought the laptop from, if it is supposed to have OFFICE or not.
I recently purchased an Acer C314XMi, best computer ever, but I noticed that I sadly didn't have any programs like: ''Microsoft Word'', ''Excel'', ''Publisher'', ''Powerpoint''. Am I supposed to download all these programs, or did they all come with the computer, I just haven't installed it. Please help, I need to use those programs!
