Yes it would work with directpc ,,but you would have to get a 10/100 Ethernet card which are kinda pricey for laptops. As far as price goes I think you could do better.

The cost of a 10/100 NIC shouldn't be too bad.

Just checked my price list
IBM I1200 CEL700,64M,10GB,M,DVD, 13.3TFT,56K,WIN ME - $1,699.00
1 year warranty, no GST - 6 in stock

Short some ram compared to the Toshiba, but a few bucks cheaper http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

boflex,

A 10/100 ethernet nic shouldn't cost to much. I
believe you can get one for about $40 or so. Try ebay.com http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

slymanthedishman,

I was just telling him he could get one at ebay for cheap. But he can go to Future shop, compusmart, etc... to get one as well. http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Internet on a cell phone right now is *at best* roughly 4800bps. Very slow and useless for anything other than short text messaging.

The newer technologies lay claims to upwards of 2.5mbps, but frankly I'd need to see that to believe it. Like other bandwidth claims of this nature, there's bound to be an asterisk.
