No. Product key was separate for activating after I bought it.

Hi,

Acer gives a trial version of Office with the computer. So, my question is that did you separately purchase a Full version of Office from them ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


Yes, I did. I have found the bill from PC World. It has been up and running since mid-September last year.
