    You always have the option to buy on a trial. The office trial is a full version good for 60 days and converts to a full version when you buy the product key from Microsoft and enter the key in the program.

    If you did not pay an extra $150 to $300 for Microsoft Office it is a trial. No computer manufacturer includes Microsoft Office for free with their computer.

    Download a Microsoft Office 2007 60 day free trial

    Trial programs contain the same functionality that you get when you buy the perpetual versions — but only for a limited time

    Once your trial runs out you can not reinstall the trial for another 60 day trial.

    Another option is to download and use OpenOffice which is FREE and is a clone of Microsoft Office. You can always buy Microsoft Office later if you do not like it.

    OpenOffice

    OpenOffice can import from Microsoft Office application and save to the MS application unless noted:

    Writer = Microsoft Word

    Calc = Microsoft Excel

    Impress = Microsoft PowerPoint

    Base = Microsoft Access

    Draw = Similar to Microsoft Publisher but not directly compatible

    No equivalent = Microsoft Office Office Outlook

    Vista doesn't come with Office 2007 on it, but maybe a trial or something is there on your laptop.
