Thanks everyone for the replies, It was my first post and I had no idea anyone replied, I couldn't even find the post for a little while, anyway all user error, and I will figure it out when I put a little time into it.
For me it comes down to dollars, my laptop with a broken screen is connected to an old TV and I use it in my home office for drawing, making toolpaths etc.. So its a pain in the bum to transport this set up from home to the workshop constantly, which I currently do, basically it is big and bulky and I dont like it in the workshop but it is fine to use at home. Thats why I am looking for something cheap to keep in the workshop, the something cheap is mostly due to the current budget, I would love to splurge out on all the mod cons, trust me I love toys!
Why i mentioned the lack of internet is only because I have tried to research my questions before posting, and alot of replies where about not hooking your PC for your machine to the internet, and I was just trying to save anybody's time - I am a first time forum user, I will improve I am sure
I wanted a cheapie for the workshop for a few reasons, 1. To make drawings up on the fly - without having to drive all the way home or wait until the next day, Make changes when required - which seems to be all the time, and just have the option to sit in my workshop and do the work as well have the luxury of the home office, so thats why I wanted to see if the laptops that I have found would cut the mustard or if I needed to save a few more bucks and wait until I could get something better.
Thanks again for your replies, much appreciated. Still not sure what to buy but I will get there or just wait until I have more cash, atleast I have the option of the old TV and laptop for now, I have to admit the big TV screen is great for doing work on Cut 2D
just not cool lugging it around.
