    Hi,
    In the summer I plan to take a vacation outta country.
    I play an online game called Ragnarok, this games does not require high system performance.
    I want to play it from aboard, Can You suggest me a laptop which is not too expensive and i could play this game?
    Another thing is that I'll be moving a lot!, Like 1\3 of the time ill be home there , and 2\3 some where else.
    What do i need to have in my laptop so i could connect to internet?
    I've seen things like a\b\g 802, what does it mean?
    my go is
    ‎Asus F5RL‎

    Though it sux, this is kinda the way I'm hunting for, a descent ram, not a Intel graphics xD and such, it costs here 900 USD.
    Thank you,
    Daniel

    900 USD can land you a pretty nice laptop here in the states... Lets see, in the states the Asus F5RL? is ~800 USD, so prices are similar...

    yeah it would run ragnarok

    These would run it fine too, I know you can't buy them from newegg but you can use their info for reference

    Most airports and hotels have WIFI hotspots (connections) so do some bars and restaurants. Some are free to use and some you have to buy air time from the venue a bit like a prepayment mobile phone. Staff at the venue will give you the information you need to connect if you ask. Some hotels also have wired internet as well so you might want to take or get a Ethernet cable they only cost about $5.
    You can check for hotels and airport hotspots for your destinations at this site http://www.hotspot-locations.com/

    What is WIFI/WLAN?

    WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) is the standard for wireless broadband computer networks. It is already widely deployed in enterprises and it is getting more and more popular as the standard for wireless Internet connections in public spaces. The most common standard is IEEE 802.11b (also called 'Wi-Fi') which offers a connection speed of 11 megabits per second. Other standards are 802.11a (55 megabits per second) and the latest standard '802.11g', which is compatible to 802.11b, but also operates on 55 megabits per second.

    You will want a laptop with 802.11g also called 54G WIFI. It will work with 98% WIFI hotspots.

    Also most public hotspots are unsecured so do not send anything over the network you do not mind someone else seeing like your credit card details for example.

    Hotspot Scam.
