Can I Put Old Software Into A New Laptop ?

Hello, We are looking to buy a new Windows 10 Laptop but we don't want to buy the new version of Microsoft Office as we wouldn't use a lot of the software on it. We have an original 2004 version of Microsoft Word and an original 2003 version of Publisher on CD, so would it be okay to put both of these on the new laptop ?. Hope someone can hlep us with this question, thank you

Don't see why not although you will not get any MS support for these old versions.

Thank you Alanrwood and Fruit Bat, that's brilliant news, I was hoping that was the case.
