Main Question or Discussion Point

Well it is second hand from E Bay, It is so cool being able to sit by the fire
and be on the internet, It is a Dell Latitude and cost me 103 quid, not sure if
that is good or not but it was the cheapest i could find.

Well it is second hand, but that is a pretty good deal, especially if one is mostly using it to browse the internet. Does it have wireless networking capability?

It doesn't dot your i's, nor cross your t's, though. Just mentioning it.

Yey Wolram. Cool! Yes, Kia did mention that she was setting something up, just before you arrived back in PF. :approve:

That is all her own stuff she was refering to, she has a room full of servers
and computers, it is like walking into the control room of NASA when you enter her computer room.
It only took her a couple of hours to set my little net work up, such a brainy
girl, i just do not know where she gets it from.

I also bought a Latitude from eBay about a year ago. I've since then resold it but it was a nice laptop for everyday use. I installed XP at first but then later put on 2000 Pro. It's an older laptop but no use in spending $1000 for a brand new one if you'd just like to enjoy wireless networking!

i had recently bought a labtop from ebay, 300+ for Dell latitude pentium III 1000Mhz processor etc...when I got it, it was loaded with spyware, or perhaps intentionally rigged with it, I won't mention the name of the company at this time, perhaps later. If you're a student, don't buy computers from ebay.
