Buying Microsoft would be too many billions of dollars. I think you may want to consider a copy of Word or such. Have you tried alternatives like Open Office or Google Docs?
Hello! I am a 19 year old college student and mom and I am looking into buying my first laptop in the couple of days. I want it mostly for internet use but also being in college there is the occasional paper that I have to write. I am wondering which might be right for me, since I have no experience with this. And I have a pretty small budget. I also need to know what I need to get so that I can use my comcast internet at home, a wireless router?? I think. And also If I would have to buy Microsoft separately from the laptop. Any advice would be great!!! Thank you all!!
