    Liz's old laptop's USB ports have all packed up and as the repair bill would be over £200 and her birthday is imminent . . . . . . . .

    Has anyone any suggestions on which would be a good replacement. Maybe with a built in web cam but not essential unless there is an easy way to use it in Florida on line.

    Price - around £400

    As an after-thought, what equipment and internet connection is needed to put a live camera in the middle of Main Street?
