It comes with Microsoft Office 2010 Starter (a stripped-down version of Word 2010) and Windows Live Writer, both of which are capable of basic word processing.

For a more fully-featured word processor (that is also free) try LibreOffice Writer.

Windows comes with Wordpad which does basic word processing documents and is sufficient for many people, and Notepad for straight text.

You can always get Open Office which is very similar to Microsoft Office, produces and uses Office documents, but free.

Yes, as long as your printer has a USB connection and is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit. This computer does not have a parallel port (a big, multi-pin, often purple-colored connector) on it.

It comes with Office 2010 trial you can do basic Word and Excel tasks but if you want full functionality of Office you need to buy a activation key for about $200. If you have all of the files from her old computer you can transfer them to this computer. If she has any special programs you will need to reinstall them on this computer. As far as Windows 7 it comes with a full version of Windows 7. I have thisToshiba computer and a Sony Vaio (that cost 4x as much) laptop and they work exactly the same, well the sony is a little faster, but runs a lot hotter. The battery on the Toshiba computer lasts twice as long as the Sony also.

Yes, Windows 7 is pre-installed on the computer. A scaled down version of Microsoft Word Starter (and Excel) comes pre-installed too. This is not a trial version (ie only to be used for a certain number of days), but is a reduced feature product with some ads on the right hand side of the screen. Outlook and access are not included, but if you are only looking for a typing program and basic spreadsheets, this will work. Research Microsoft Starter for more info (online).

The hard drive is 320 gigs, mine says 284 Gigs are available so the rest must be a different partition for the recovery or something else.

Some TV programs can be streamed online at the networks website. However, if you want to watch actual over-the-air, cable or satellite programming you would have to get an external TV tuner that is compatible with Windows.
