I need to pick up a laptop that will allow me to get access to the internet when I am in random locations throughout Phoenix Metro. I sell Real Estate and I need to be able to look up houses etc through the internet for clients as well as be able to work through the internet from random neighborhoods. A guy at CompUSA told me I can get a laptop and sign on with Verizon for $60 a month and have unlimited wireless internet access through some kind of cell phone signal without even using my cell phone but the laptop will directly call Verizon. (I have heard of setups where you plug your cell phone into your computer and use your phone to access the internet, and I do not mind that method but the setup he was describing sounded really cool). Is it really that simple and cheap? I don't need anything fancy, just access to the internet. I'd like to spend less than $1000. What is the best way for me to achieve what I am trying to do for the least amount of money? From what he is saying I can buy a laptop for like $500-$800 and get this hookup for $60 a month and be able to logon to the net from anywhere. Is it really that simple and great, and is that the best way to do it? I just don't know much about computers and don't want to get ripped off by a salesman. Any advice? thanks! PS- I know some people with laptops and a standard wireless connection and they just use a detector to find a random signal and get onto the internet that way for free. I don't mind doing it that way too if it is a lot cheaper and reasonably reliable.
