Why Doesn’t My New Computer Have Microsoft Word, Excel, Etc.?

When you order a new computer these days, a lot of software gets "bundled" with it by Dell, IBM, or HP.  Unfortunately, if you would like the Microsoft office applications like Word, Excel, and Outlook, you need to ask for it.

Happily, asking for the OEM bundle at the time you order your new PC is a great way to save money on the latest version of all version of Office.  But you do have to ask for it, otherwise, you won't get it!
