    why i need the laptop is so i can connect to xbox live, im going to use a wired connection.

    Just plug the ethernet cable into the back of the xbox

    Or buy a wireless network bridge at a fraction of the cost of a laptop

    With the other end in your modem/router

    i need the laptop just for xbox, surfing the net thats all really

    So you want a laptop for general use and also to use to get a connection on your xbox?

    Do you not want to use the laptop wirelessly then? Even the laptop needs to be connected by wire?

    Just get a cheap switch and connect both up, but I've never had any problems with the xbox when used wirelessly unless you want to stream HD movies.

    Any computer/laptop with both Wi-Fi and an ethernet connection will do...
