My mom wanted me to do some shopping for notebooks for christmas. I have a
hint that when I get home on december 20, she's going to ask me the best
deal I found. She said no more than 1000 dollars.
I have found the toshiba 1115-S103 from Bestbuy for 1099 with a 200 dollar
The specifications look fine to me, except. It does not have a serial port
or floppy disk drive.
1. How can I install jaws on a computer with no floppy disk drive? What are
people doing to boot the system? Aside from bootible cdrom.
2. What would be the best way to have serial devices accessable to the
system? I may want to install Linux so having the serial port workable with
speakup is what I want. That is the only thing I use the serial port for..
My mom has placed a few requirements on me, like the machine has to be
pickupable from a store.. So I'm at the murcy of their pricing...
Thanks for the suggestions.
