Would I be right to assume that a shiny new 21st century netbook like the NC10 has nothing so archaic as a built-in dial-up modem? (can’t see it mentioned in the specs). Yes, I know that’s pretty much equivalent to asking about daisy wheel printers these days, but they are occasionally useful when visiting remote parts of the world (like Mid Glamorgan). Just wanted to check before forking out for a USB dongle modem (NC10 should be here next week).
There is nothing mentioned in the spec on the Samsung website about having a 56k modem so I think your assumption is correct.
indeed no dial up at all
Thanks for that. Ebuyer has a ‘Zoom USB V.92 Dongle Modem’ for Â£15, which looks pretty compact, so I think I’ll go for that.
the jetway is about 12 pounds from aria and a less compact one on pixmania for 4 pounds
Thanks, I’ll check those out (want the smallest/lightest Linux-compatible one I can find for < Â£20).
