Laptop Advise

Hi All

My brother want to buy a new Laptop, and he wants to be able to use wireless broadband. Now, I know nothing about wireless broadband, so was wondering if any of you very helpfull people had any idea how to go about this. At the moment, he doesnt have a broadband ISP, but that is easily sorted. Does he just need to buy a wireless adaptor and a wireless ADSL modem like click here or click here. Does the laptop need to meet any minimum specs ?

Thanks Johnny.

So, if he buys a laptop, he can then buy a wireless adaptor, and an ADSL Gatemway. Then presumably, he needs to get a broadband ISP, plug everything in and hey presto ? Sounds fairly easy, presuming I am correct !!

Some Laptops already have Wireless build-in, you do not need to buy separate wireless card. Anything with Intel ® Centrino ® has wireless buildin. As for ADSL wireless modem, the one you selected will do, but you can find cheaper ones, look click here to get some idea. Even you do not buy from there, you will know what is likely bottom price.
