My Compaq Presario CQ1-1011D All-in-One PC doesn't seem to have MS office installed.

Do I need to buy MS office or is there any free copy/evaluation?

I only need word excel and ppt

Thanks

There is an office free trial

generally except that you specifically request it most do NOT come with it loaded. Generally it is a trial version if it seems to be loaded. Check your build specs on your purchase documents.

You will need to buy or you can find a free version if you choose... free sounds nice but many would rather pay for the ease and comfort of what they are used to....

Here is a compatible free version

If you do not want to buy a license for MS office there are many office alternatives that are free out there that you can use instead of MS office. A free trial is a free trial, once you try the software for a specific period you have to buy a license if you want to continue to use the software beyond the trial period.  If you try to use it beyond the trial period it will not work you will get a popup saying the trial has expired and will be directed to the site to buy a license for the software.  It is therefore recommended used to use one of the free alternatives to MS office.  Such as "Open Office" if you do not want to buy a license for MS office.
Often the big box manufacturers such as dell or hp will ship their systems with MS office pre-installed but that is always a trial version of the software. YOu can use it for so many days then if you continue to use it you have to buy a license. Unless you specifically ordered MS office specifically at the time of your purchase and paid for the office license as part of your computer purchase then it will ,most likely be a trial version.
