No, Windows 7 does not included Microsoft Office (which includes Excel and Word). Windows 7 is an operating system (OS) and Word and Excel are part of software suite called Microsoft Office which has to be purchased separately. Most new computers come with a 30 to 60 day trial version of Office. After the trial period expires you have to purchase the software. Hope this helps. David
Yes, there's a basic (starter) version of 2010 Word and Excel installed. Of course, they offer you the opportunity to purchase a more complete version of Microsoft Office which includes a free version update, if you need it.
The computer comes with a basic Microsoft Office offering of Word and Excel that works and gives you the basic abilities of each, but it is NOT the full program of each with all the features and capabilities. To get the full programs you have to get Microsoft Office (2010 is currently available) in several levels: "Home and Student" has the basics of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. The next level up is "Home and Business" which has those 4 programs plus Outlook. The full blown package is "Professional" which has all of these plus Publisher and Access.
