Does anyone know what the best deal is to purchase a laptop with built in wireless internet?
What does it cost per month for the connection typically.
Thanks for your help with this

What do you mean by "built in wireless internet"?

The vast majority (if not all) laptops these days come with a built-in card to allow you to connect wirelessly to the internet.

The cost varies from ISP to ISP and is the same whether you connect wirelessly or hard-wired.

Sorry, i'm not very clued up with wireless internet connections, or how they work.

What i am after is a value laptop that has a built in broadband speed modem, if thats what its called, and what it would cost per month to connect, i dont know which provider has the best deal, or if the modem card supplied is fixed for one provider.

Laptops do not usually come with a built-in broadband modem.

An external USB broadband modem is usually supplied by the ISP when you sign up for one of their packages.

Built-in wireless cards are NOT linked to any particular ISP.

Asking which provider has the best deal is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string".
