In process of getting new laptops in the house.
We live out in the sticks so whilst we are on broadband the speed is not good. Cant remember the numbers now but for instance when watching iplayer it will occasionally judder, not always but can be a bit annoying.
I do understand which broadband company you are with can affect this and also things like where your router is....
My question is how much does the actual laptop also affect it.
As well as getting myself a laptop i am thinking of getting the kids something a bit cheaper like a samsung n130 or similar. I am wondering how this spec would fair for watching things like i player, you tube that sort of thing. The one i have seen says intel atom N270 Hard Drive 250GB and 1 GB RAM. What should i look for spec wise to get the very best internet we can. Other than that we only do normal word processing and i would want to put photos on mine and use something like Paint shop Pro.
