HI,
can anyone give me some advice.
I am seriously thinking of getting the Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop but just wanted to know a few things.
1. Am I better off getting Dell to add on the microsoft word package or should I try and get a disk off someone and add it on myself?
2. I have a home pc at the moment which is connected to broadband for my internet, would I be able to get the internet on the laptop easily enough or would I have to switch my current broadband package to a wireless broadband package?
Thanks for advice in advance

Hello,

It seems like everything is in order. Your broadband package will do the trick I believe.

Getting Microsoft Office or a different program is entirely your own choice. Most people use the default MS Word, Excel etc though.

Using your current broadband connection is the way to go, although having a notebook you will most likely want to go wireless with it to the broadband modem though. Cheaply done, by yourself from 75 to 150 $.

If you want a good office program drop the micrcrap err I mean microsoft office and instead use the Open Office software that can be downloaded and used freely and is totally compatible with any MS Office utility, It will even save documents in MS Formats.

Im all about saving money and for me thats the way to go.
