A few days ago I dropped into my local computer shop for a new fan. As I was leaving, I noticed a bunch of laptops for sale. They seemed incredibly inexpensive. I wanted to know more about them. After some consultation, I bought http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/hp-compaq-nc6230/4505-3121_7-31297917.html for about $350 CAD. I did know that laptops are small, have no wires, etc. , but, I didn't know that you can connect to the internet with the click of a button! It's amazing; there is, here, the choice of about 20 or so networks you can simply connect to - free! Am I the last to discover all this?

Are these free public access wireless networks or unsecured private networks? (Nice laptop by the way.)

We have the choice of both here in Toronto. With a laptop without any data, I simply logged on to the first network the card found. It is an unsecured private network. I've got some learnin' to do before I make greater use of the laptop. Still, even at this level, it's pretty cool.
