Well, since my life has become Hell, for not being able to do computer homework at work, I had to drop a class. (picking it up again in the summer) The only solution was to get a laptop and go wireless. So with some birthday money, and my income tax, I am all set. Needless to say, I am REALLY exited!

Here (http://www.bestbuy.com/detail.asp?e=11215181&m=0&cat=0&scat=0), tell me what you think?

Attached is another view from that link.

Also if any of you have ever used wireless internet, please tell me how it works. I could use the advice.:cool:





The Swamp is not safe anymore.......MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!:D

Its got a nice procesor and everything but it looks kinda funny. :D ;)

And I think wireless internet is used off of either a satellite or a thing that sits in your home, don't know the range though.

It's satilite's i belive and it can also hook onto local net cafe's net and everything but i hear the net isn't very fast due to the range it's got to reach.

I am paying for a portion of it. A combination of birthday present money and my income tax check. The rest will go on the credit card.

Its got a nice procesor and everything but it looks kinda funny.
What is so funny about it?:confused:

It is faster than mine too, so don't feel bad.

And I think wireless internet is used off of either a satellite or a thing that sits in your home, don't know the range though.
It uses towers that are interdispersed throughout the area. Similar to cell phone technology. Not a very fast connection, but it will suffice.

Denke, I'll be talking to you on msn from it very soon!


Where did you lived?
Joliet, Illinois, which is near Chicago.

Me too. I guess they are saying that because its rounded, but I think it looks better that way... *shrugs*:indif:

Now are you talking about using the integrated 802.11b to connect to the internet? Or do you mean you are going to pay for actual wireless access?

If you mean 802.11b, then it works very nicely as far as I can tell, as I use it in both my desktop and laptop. It could definitely use some more speed for file transfers, but that's what 802.11a is for, right? ;) In fact, that's how I'm posting this at this very moment. ;) :D

You guys are so lucky you don't visit the Dark Forces forum ;)

Anyway, my HP all-in-one printer has a very nice design. Right-angles just never seem to exist on HP (Heward Packard) products - just curves. And lets face it, we all like curves :p
