(word processor,internet browser,ECT)...

FreeBSD should work fine with your hardware. as to your software, do not
expect anything you currently have to run in FreeBSD. However, there are
TONS of applications included with FreeBSD via the Ports collection that
can replace the programs you use now. OpenOffice, Firefox, etc. should
work just fine for you.

Good luck in your new OS search. FreeBSD is a great one!
