Just make sure you don't keep your access point in your room. If you do that you'll end up glowing in the dark, and that never helps.

Cheap laptops off ebay are sometimes worth it. I got mine for £250 quid, its damn near prehistoric but look at the size of it:



So tiny it gets blown away in high winds, more than makes up for the slowness if you can avoid the keymashing caused by the small keyboard. The little blob on the left of the screen is the mouse by the way, you stick your thumb on it and the buttons are on the other side of the lid - kinda like the IBM powernipples thing but suprisingly nicer to use.

Edited cos I got carried away with labels

Wireless computer stuff.... in my opinion isnt worth it..... Half of the time like your mouse ends up screwing itself over (or the comp...), and it breaks a ton.... I prefer just to keep it all hooked up.

The trick to wireless gear is to get good quality parts. I'm using a wireless network, and a wireless keyboard and mouse. The Logitech cordless desktop MX has all the buttons in the world, and is better than many corded setups I've used.

Yay! I got a wireless setup for my laptop for graduation... it's great, until your computer starts forgetting that it's supposed to be wireless *glares at the laptop* but we got it all fixed in the end.

I got a laptop for graduation smile.gif They're fabulous. I love mine. I love the portableness. I know that it will never leave my side at school this year. Though the mouse is a bit strange. I haven't quite gotten use to that yet. Or the keyboard. I might try and see if I can't get a real mouse for it, if it continues to annoy me so much.

Here in CNY, the city is oozing with free wifi hotspots. One of the local malls has a hotspot in the food court and they allow after hours lan sessions. You just need to bring your own food and beverages and be sure to get a card from the security crew. Good times!

Oh yeah, laptops are great also!! My fiance and I each have one. Its nice to be able to chat with one another and send photos while we are away. Yay for laptops.

Mhmm, all the hotspots in the UK seem to charge silly amounts for next to nothing. I think the myCloud ones that get built into those 'lots and lots of games in one with a touchscreen' things in pubs charge about £6 per hour mad.gif .
