The activation key for Microsoft Office is not provided with the computer -- Office is a separate purchase, and the Product Key for that can be found in the package itself.
If you've purchased a new computer that comes with Microsoft Office Starter 2010, you can activate this free version without a Product Key by opening the Office softare, then clicking the 'Use' button to use Office Starter, rather than the 'Activate' button to activate a purchased copy.
Hope that helps!
