Which laptop do I need?

  Portiag 21:00 20 Mar 2008

I have a laptop at the moment and I use it for for work emails, internet and music.
It is so aweful at connecting to the broadband internet. It was very cheap to buy and is a FAUJITSU-SIEMENS with I think 512mb.
I would please like some advice on which is the best laptop to buy and what I need to look for in a laptop that makes it work better.
I'm probably looking to spend £500-£600.
Advice would be much appreciated!
Thank you!

The fact that "It is so aweful at connecting to the broadband internet" is not the fault of the laptop.

The culprit may be your modem/router (or drivers) or your telephone line or your distance from the exchange or even the poor quality of service provided by your ISP, but it will not be the laptop itself.

Having said that, a bit of basic housekeeping with click here won't go amiss to clear the crap out of the laptop
