Hi folks, sorry to be a pest, but I'm having to seek help with getting stuff ready for my husband to get going with this new business while looking after 2 imps under 2! Bit like trying to see through mud at the mo...he's working all hours (for someone else) so it's a bit catch 22 - he can't leave til he gets his stuff together, etc.
Anyway! I asked yesterday about tv/dvd combis - he'd also need a projector, so we figured rather than go for a projector and tv/dvd combi separately, a laptop might look more professional and be less to hump about. Also, he can keep in touch with other companies by email to follow up any new business to keep us in baked beans, lol!
We've only just got a dvd ourselves so I haven't a clue what spec to be looking at. Basically, he needs to show dvds, do slideshow, check emails, he'll need Word and maybe to print stuff off, although if it's a much more expensive option with a laptop, we probably won't bother with the printer as we have the (cheap and cheerful!) home pc and printer, and we're on a very tight budget.
We're not looking for anything posh, just reliable and cheap - having it breakdown mid fork lift truck course would probably not create a good impression!
Sorry if I sound completely thick - I've looked at laptops on the net and the birds start tweeting in my head (lack of sleep, newborn-itis!!) but I just can't take the technical stuff in at present. :oops:
Thanks in advance for your patience and any help you might be able to offer!
