Mac user given a laptop-internet connect help!

Good afternoon all,
Was wondering if anyone can help me or give me some advice please?, i've also posted this in absolute beginners but realised i'd posted in the wrong forum as i'm asking for help!

Basically my sister has just bought a new laptop and has given me her old one (compaq evo N400C) and i'd like to connect to the internet on it but haven't got a clue as to how?

To be honest I've basic knowledge of computers and I'm not familiar with windows at all-I'm a Mac user!

At home I currently have a Apple Mac computer which is connected to the internet via NTL/Virgin with a ethernet cable.

I have no phone line, only the broadband connection.

Can anyone give me any guidance or advise me of how to get this laptop connected to the internet please?
