    Can I use any of your laptops on the internet?#box { height: 280px; width: 280px; float: right; margin: 15px; }
    All of our laptops, apart from the "basic laptops" are suitable to go on the internet. Some come with a built-in modem, but for those that don't, we can supply one from just £20 for a PCMCIA (credit card type) modem with a cable. If you buy your modem at the same time as your laptop, it will come fully configured to dial up to our free internet service where you only pay for a local call on your normal telephone bill. If you buy a modem at a later date and want us to fit it for you, we can do this free of charge (excluding carriage charges). If you want to fit the modem yourself, you may find our support section useful which also gives details of our free dialup service.

    What's the difference between cd/cdrw/dvd drives and why do I need one?

    There are three different types of CD drives now available. A standard CD drive allows you to install software and play music. If you only need your laptop for basic internet/email and word processing, you probably won't need a CD drive. A DVD drive works in exactly the same way as a CD drive but can also play DVD movies and disks as well as normal CDs. A CDRW drive works the same as a CD drive but can make audio and data CDs from blank disks, and you can also use the drive with re-writeable (eraseable) disks for backing up larger amounts of data. If you are not sure about this, please feel free to contact us.

    Can I use an external mouse with my laptop?
    Most of our laptops come with their own internal mouse, but if you prefer an external mouse then you can connect one. We supply with a mouse with a mouse mat at a very reasonable price and if you're not sure how to set it up, please contact us and we can talk you through it.
