Hello Andrew, Dell is usually fairly cheap. Once over the parts were rather expensive to replce one reason they are maybe the cheapest that I know of. The parts may also be more affordable now. http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/category.aspx/notebooks?c=uk&cs=ukbsdt1&l=en&s=bsd&~ck=ic PCWorld usually have a bargin or two and Laptops have come down a lot in recent months. http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/store/pcw_page.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0597199099.1221115963@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccladefdildddjcflgceggdhhmdgmk.0&page=ProductList&category_oid=-28487&show_all=true Your not ignorant, like me your not computer minded that is all.

Hello all, I am soon to be teaching a web conferencing class using WiZiQ. The problem is that I do not own my own computer and I can't afford much. I need something from which I will be able to teach the class, that will not cause the audio or video to work at less than an optimal level and will be able to support the use of a web cam and microphone and speaker. I need a computer that will be capable of doing these things fast. I don't need it to be able to do much else. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have been told that inexpensive computers are made that may be able to work well with the internet if not able to do much else. Excuse my ignorance. --Andrew -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
