    champions has the best signal but its locked. can ya unlock them?
    No - you can't unlock them, but try NetStumbler - it will locate wireless hotspots for you, and tell you if they are locked or not.

    DISCLAIMER: The author of this response does not condone the "questionably illegal" piracy of wireless internet signals. The fact that he does it all the time also has no bearing.

    I have a Dell 700m which is a great size for traveling. I use a Verizon broadband aircard and two communication backups systems (just in case).
    Loaded on it: GSAK, Expert GPS, MapSource, Topo USA, NRoute, GoogleEarth (pay version), DeLorme Topo USA6.0, Street Atlas USA 2006, RoboGeo, POI loader, and xImage. Yes, it's a caching laptop. Feeds nicely into the Dell Axim51v and 60CSx for actual caching.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!! Do you have any DNF's?............
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Some McDonald's have wireless but sometimes it does not work. When it doesn't if they have a paid membership "Cafe" with a computer I have found them willing to let you use it "without" the membership.

    i've got a dell desktop and a dell laptop, i love their computers, but good luck on their customer service. If it breaks i just fix it myself.

    Hmm, I have 2 dell laptops here and the support has been pretty good, the only problem I ever have is convince the tech that I am actually a dell certified tech and allready have done the diagnosis...... But then I did put the 4 year complete care waranty on them so I did not have to worry about breaking them... Caching accidents, oops how did that fall off the cliff
