Hi,

Where is the cheapest place to buy a dongle that will be compatible with the Acer 5102 laptop I have ordered from Comet?

Also, I’m not too too familiar with Dongles, can anyone recommend which type to go for.

Thanks

usb dongle is a little jobby you insert in one of the usb ports on your putor, and with the wizzy software stuff, your putor can talk to your phone via blue tooth and transfer say tunes to your mobile etc they are very good and well cheap .. ;-)

I would like to transfer pictures/videos from my mobile phone on to the laptop

I thought all Dongles would be compatible but reading on the 5102 thread on notebook review, some dongles were not working with the laptop

No-one knows of any good deals?

I got mine on ebay and it has been really good. Cost under a tenner i think.

Just bear in mind that they are a little difficult to install in windowsXP so if you get one feel free to PM me and ill give you instructions if you get stuck.

Yes, what's the need for a double post?

The Original Poster, Hotuk suggested the infrared for him/herself! At what point did he or she mention bluetooth?

Do not jump to conclusions - clearly she doesn't want a Bluetooth one!

Sorry, for not making myself clear, I did mean Bluetooth (not too familiar with this dongle thing).

Argos are doing one for £9.99 for a 10m range, is this any good?
