On the subject of laptop vs. desktop, I think it has now become a question of what do you want to do: laptops are good enough for al ...[text shortened]... take up less room in the house too. Or a silent PC media centre if your a gadget boy like me! 🙂
Thanks I really appreciate that, it's so hard to walk into a store and get objective advice from a salesperson. Although I don't go away for that much per year it would be nice to have completely remote mobile internet access. The data deals that I have seen are for monthly costs for data downloads:
Low £11.75 5MB £2.35 for each additional MB
Medium £23.50 25MB £1.76 for each additional MB
High £53.00 150MB £0.88 for each additional MB
Power £99.99 500MB £0.59 for each additional MB
If there was a pay as you go system (without the monthly charge) that would be better (there may very well be?do you know if there is one?) as then I would keep my broadband connection at home and only use the 3G data card as a secondary account for access whilst away from home.
