question or 2. I'm planning to buy a NoteBook fairly soon, & have 2 questions. 1) I use a WACOM Graphics Tablem on my desktop PC. Very nice. Came with a cordless mouse, but I don't use it as the mouse I've got is fine. Can I use this cordless mouse instead of that 'orrid little touch-sensitive pad thingy? 2)I don't particularly wanna set up a LAN, but want to go online with the NoteBook - Is it poss to use the NoteBook directly connected to the phone line and use the same ISP that I use with my desktop PC?
Hi, As long as your laptop has a modem. You will have to set up your ISP setting on your laptop, Best way to do this is go online to your ISP, set up another E.mail address and let your ISP set up your setting automatically. Cheers, Bill
Some ISPs accounts like freeserve anytime operate only from a specific phone number, so are of limited use on a mobile device like a laptop. I've got two accounts on mine, one for home use and a pay as you go for on the move.
yeah, the laptop will have a modem and LAN capability - I wonder if I'm right in thinking though that if I DID set up a LAN, then both the PC & the Laptop could go online together - or would surfing at the same time cause the site pages to appear garbled as it's 2 lots of info requested via the same (dial-up)phone line? (understand my way of thinking? difficult I know - I wonder myself sometimes...;-D) I'm glad about the cordless mouse though.
