Thinking about buying a Lappy

  [DELETED] 23:07 31 Aug 2003

What do you think? I've got a fairly old desktop that does every thing I want, (Athlon 650 with 256M ram).But I fancy a lappy but I wondered are they worth bothering with? Granted I would use one to watch DVD whilst away from home ( in the caravan!) sad sad yes I know.How long do the batteries last? And wireless internet connections are dear (Broad Band at home)

are they worth bothering with?

yes and no.if its only for watching dvds in the caravan,why not get a portable dvd player.with screen prices start around £300 and without screen(tv required)around £99 upwards.

Hi huggyg71

12 volt electrics won't run a DVD player, I would like to surf when away from home and perhaps some work (swear word)
