Laptop news.

The SA BEST laptop that I hoped to use was not up to the task.  It lacked USB ports and wireless LAN capability, and was loaded with Windows 95, which is not compatible with the Mindstorms NXT software that we will be using.

Fortunately, I was able to find a laptop on Craigslist that will fit the bill.  It's a bit newer, and has a freshly installed Windows XP as well as USB ports and wireless capability.  It came at a good price, and the seller threw in an installation disk for Windows XP.
