    Ok ive made my mind up all, ive decided to go for a laptop, but i want one that i can connect to the net wirelessly . Should i go for one with the mobile technology in it, whch are about 1.5 or should i buy a decent laptop with a 3 gig processor and stick a card in the side, would that be better , i know its seems a simple question but a bit of verification would be appreciated

    Ultimately it is up to you.

    Im my opinion the only advantage to going with one with wireless built in would be how often it is going to be moved around, as you don't want to be plugging the card in and out all of the time if you want to keep putting it in a bag.

    That said though you can get a lot more laptops now which have embedded wireless, so price isn't always a conisderation.

    Did you have any specific models in mind?

    Well, if you're going to use it for gaming see the one that Phoenix suggests in this thread.

    It probably costs a bit tho!

    These days definitely go for a lappy with wireless built in, preferably with a switch so you can turn it off when necessary i.e. if you are using it on an aircraft.

    Also, get one which has a high res 15.4 wide-screen, at least a Gig of RAM, Fast mobile processor and decent battery life, dig cam memory stick readers built in, plus Fire-wire, plus LAN, plus modem. etc etc.

    Buy a laptop that is powerful enough to see you into the future. I am still using mine after five years (HP yuk) but it has none of these features and the ones I sell do and they make me want them so badly :cry:
