Friend needs a laptop. Okay gurus, here's the question:
Laptop needs to be able to do the following:
Accountant needs to enter lots of numbers, so he needs the ability to enter numbers based on having 789, 456, 123 as on a desktop keyboard arrangement (some laptop keyboards may have this capability)
Wireless internet access through an AT&T wireless-connected cell phone
Run Quickbooks Pro 2004 with payroll reasonably quickly (big program)
The usual: email, office apps, web, etc.
What do you think?
He'd buy used if necessary to keep costs down, get more performance.
