Refering to the link wjrt gave, the laptop has got wireless internet, and should be ok with wireless broadband or just broadband using a wire and be ok for downloading.

Im so sorry if my posts are getting annyoying.

A reall fast computer is not required for broadband so really anything you buy now will do you fine. Same goes for Word, Excell etc.
Look for one with as much memory as you can get 1 meg preferably and a reasonable hard drive size.
