Hi Bomb. My professor says it has to be MSWord. Something about a grading tool. Is the software I listed too bulky for my Laptop? I really want to keep it to what she specifies. It is for 4 papers for her class. Not just one that I can do at on a borrowed PC with Word

Your system will easily handle MS Office, the better buy is the Home and Student as it can be loaded legally onto 3 computers in the same household (for non-commercial use)

I have a much lower spec laptop with Microsoft Office installed, it runs well.

Darn, I was going to make some comment about it depending on how big your lap is....
I suspect your prof doesn't know much about OO per bomb's suggestion - it saves documents as .doc files, just like Word.
And if you are going to get 2007, make sure your prof wants the papers formatted in the older Word format (.doc) or the new 2007 format (.docx). 2007 can save as both - just be certain you know which way he/she wants it.
