I have read that the latest versions of Norton are much improved, BUT with so many excellent freeware programs out there, why mess with it at all. I use Avira AntiVir Personal and it has been working great.
As Noel posted, have a look at dk's thread, it has a lot of good information in it.
What other kind of info was you looking for, aside form security software dee?

Setting up a wireless network is very easy, Dee. I have helped a couple people at work over the phone set up their network.

For my wireless, I have a wireless G router.....updated the firmware and have it WAP2 encrypted....I know there is the N wireless, but I haven't dealt with them, so I tend to stick with the G network.

So the laptop you are looking at does not come with a hard drive installed? The price will be dependent upon the size and type that you require. You know that I am from the states so I know not where to tell you to shop at.

Dee, I am just curious, are you just wanting a way to back up your files and stuff? Or are you actually wanting/needing a backup pc?

That last post sounds a little better, at least it comes with a HDD. Did you post the details of the other? I guess I need to go back and see. lol

Somewhere you had posted that you were looking at a razor and mentioned the company. I had did aquick search, and for one being sold on ebay...that I believe someone had just purchased.

Toshiba Razor on Ebay

The top description said no HDD but the details did say it had a 40GB HDD.
