I need it to be able to pick up the internet signal from a wireless router. Which part of the spec enables it to do this (if it has it)?

And, is this a good value laptop for £330? (Not needed for games)

VNAM75 The link that you give shows the laptop as :
HP 550 Laptop, Intel Core 2 Duo T5670 1.8GHz, 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM, 15.4" BrightView TFT, DVD±RW Lightscribe Writer, Bluetooth, SD Card Slot, Vista Home Premium, Office Ready (60 day trial or 25 uses)*Free Cloud Wi-Fi*

This is not a Celeron which are cheap and cheerfull but a but a pretty good Core 2 Duo with 2mb level two cash. Also with Vista Home Premium not Basic. A bit over 2years ago it would be selling for about £700 so it is pretty good for that price.

Quiet Life, thanks. It does seem a very good spec, better than the dell and pc world ones I checked.
