Re: New Laptop


I haven’t priced laptops for a long time, but I doubt you need to spend more than 500 dollars, maybe less, especially if you find a good sale.  This is just a very rough guessand my 500 dollar limit may be too high. 
Depending on how much you want to spend, you may want to contact Computers for the Blind, which other list members can tell you more about.  I think you can get a refurbished laptop from them for something like 150 dollars.  It will have more than enough power to meet the needs you describe.  But whether you can specify such things as a numpad and what kind of battery life you can expect are things I don’t know.

Sorry I plan to carry it some but wont be all the time or anything so
not really worried about how light it is but I do want a number pad
definately.  One that has long battery life as possable as well.
