I want to buy a laptop but l am a woman that just switches a pc on and l teach on the net but haven't a clue about all these words l keep reading. I always except them to work :)
I only have dial up and cable, tryed broadband but its terrible in my area.
I would like as much freedom as l can have as l will be travelling with it.
So can anyone tell me or point me to somehere that l can understand what different things mean so l know where is the best place to buy what l am looking for.

What do you really want?

Do you want to have net access when you travel with Lappy?

It is very expensive business. If you do not have deep pocket, forget about it.

If you have not very deep pocket, but luck enough to travel in certain places. You can get a lappy with wireless capability and access net when you around a WIFI hotspot. It is not cheap. You can normally find them in airport, train station and also some Starbuck Coffee.

If you have deep pocket, you can get BB access through Mobile network, Vodaphone, Orage and other operaters offer this service. The charge is over £100 a month and you need to buy a speail adaptor which is about £100.
