Talking Im on my first laptop!!

Since we have wifi capabilities, i am using an old laptop given to me by my friend. It runs windows 2000, and is very fast. I am running firefox 3, which speeds it up even more!!

Just remember. They can get mighty hot so despite their name, dont run them on your lap without protection for your legs and air ventilation for the fans.

Can you give us some specs on the laptop?

Hard Disk space?
RAM?
Processor?

Are you sure you have the right model? If so dont even try XP. 64MB is not nearly enough to get it running efficiently. You might get some lighter weight Linux OS that will run pretty well. But youre better off sticking with W2K.
