    Hey :)
    I'm just wondering about the wireless LAN,
    I was going to buy Acer 290 LCi and it only said Wireless LAN, without specifying any detail.

    I asked the acer seller and he didn't know either :(
    anyway.... how do you know whether a notebook is a 802.11 b or g ?
    Is there any other indication in the spec ?

    I loved the model of the white NEC Versa E600, but it's a bit over my budget. :)

    anyway, as always, thanks :D

    okiee... should've done research before asking stupid question.
    hohoho...

    for acer LMi and NEC VersaE600 =
    becoz it's centrino, so it's gotta be 802.11b

    and u can always get the card for 802.11g later right ?
    although it's best to get a notebook that can be used with both 802.11 b & g.

    but in terms of quality of the 2 notebook.
    Acer LMi and NEC Versa E600
    which one would be of a better quality ?
    generally speaking.

    I'd be taking it to Milan, Italy,
    so which has the more tech support thingy abroad ?

    Thankxxx.... :)

    It's safe to assume it's 802.11b unless specified otherwise. 802.11b is the standard at this point in time and anything outside of that would be specifically mentioned as an extra feature.

    You cannot always add a g card, it depends on the machine. As for the two you are looking at, I prefer the Acer brand, especially with a lot of international travel. I think you'll find their support to be more robust.
