i am a small business person who is purchasing a specialty software application to assist me during client sessions. my question relates to where i should shop/what i should seek for the purchase of 10 notebook computers, preferably xp, but with minimum memory and no peripherals other than wireless network. i'm not at all tech savvy. the software will reside on my notebook (host) and allow each user to "log on" to a facilitated session via either their wireless, or if remote, via the internet. there is no significant amount of local memory required (ie., in the 10 stations) and only storage of session information is on the "host".
1. any sense of what the cheapest notebook alternative is? ...since i have to lug them about to client sites, the only "feature" that would be nice is their being light weight. and;
2. any sense of where the best place(s) to purchase is? i live in canada (vancouver) should that matter (??),
at any rate, thanks for contemplating my question,
