I am going to buy a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Laptop, which includes :

Windows XP Home
Toshiba Utilities and Drivers
Toshiba Management Console

Will any of this software include a word processorand email program???

That is Windows XP Home. Toshiba Utilities and Drivers. Toshiba Management Console

Not unless it say's so XP home does not contain any Office Programs. You need to check what software you get with the Laptop

As Woodchip says unless if specifies MS Word, MS Office or MS Works or another Word processor / office Suite there will be no Word Processor.

As for an e-mail program you'll at least get Outlook Express.

Not very good with XP (I am on Win98SE) but I would expect it to have Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. You may also find it has either Wordpad or Notepad, both of which are very basic wordprocessors. If you want a proper wordprocessor I can post you a CD called Supreme Office which is supposed to be Microsoft Office compatible. Just email me and it's yours free.

click here for a posting on useful freeware. OpenOffice is the best of the free office suites and if you don't want to download it it's on the February PC Advisor cover DVD (Not the CD) or can be purchased for about a fiver from distributors click here .
