I am new to laptops. I want to play lovefilm online player on my TV a Panasonic viesta. I am sure it has the relevant connections being a good modern-ish TV. I wanted to play the movies from my laptop wireless to the TV.
A few questions-
1) will the laptop if plugged in use as much electricity as an average sky + plus box.
2) Is the processor quick enough
3) I assume my laptop runs off the wireless router connected to my desktop like my mobile phone does at the moment. Is a laptop cable running from my laptop to my TV going to work ? (please ask for any clarification). Note- Do I do not need two routers-one for desktop and one for a laptop. If I have to get another router I will.
4) Will my broadband provider charge more for using a second laptop computer and a new router if I have to do it this way ?(hoping not to do it this way)
Other unrelated questions-
Will it run most applications and be fairly good for surfing ?( I am not a gamer)
Will it be adequate for the next 3 years as a laptop for me ?
Hope this is logical and answerable- if not can you tell me if it does not make sense.
