Hi, where as I'm a little savvy when it comes to desktop PCs I know next to nothing out laptops, netbooks, tablets and excessively complicated phones.
That said, I'm off to the States with my wife later this year for a few months and we thought it might be worth getting a laptop with wifi capability so we can book hotel rooms in advance whilst on the road etc. (and so I can check deals daily...)
We're looking for something which isn't a huge expense (£500 at most) and will serve as a second computer when we return - which is why we decided on a laptop over a netbook. For it's post vacation life the most that's going to be expected of it is photoshop I'd imagine, then just the usual browsing, word processing etc.
Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations (or words of warning!) on laptops. Ideally we want something well made and from a reputable firm, as I've been stung with small companies going bust half way thru PC warranties before.
Finally are all laptops these days set up for wifi or will dongles be needed? And does anyone know if there'd any complications with using something brought here in the States.
