    I was wondering what apps are installed on the Surface Pro and found a list of them at which seems like at least enough to get you started. It doesn't come with Microsoft Office but I noticed it does come with a one month trial for Office 365.

  • Jack

    Yes it runs full office, meaning all macros, vba add-on, commands will work perfectly.

  • HJA

    This product sounds great. I'm wondering if it will handle Excel Macros so that Georgia Child Support worksheets can be succesfully handled. (They haven't worked with tablets, i pads, etc., to this point.)
