Just switching away from BT Yahoo broadband at the moment. Signing up
with Eclipse Internet who seem to have good reviews on the net. I went
to ispreview.co.uk for comments/recommendations/horror stories.
Bought my laptop from novatech.co.uk. Fairly cheap and (IMHO) good
quality. Only issue I had was a lacking of the intel centrino wireless
driver but that comes with all the latest distros so no problems to report.
My 2 cents.
