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.

Office Professional 2007
licensed for up to 2 home computers
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 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.
