Barbara Ann,

I also use a USB keyboard with my laptop because I do not want to be
bothered trying to think of what the stupid keystroke is for the laptop.

I also use one of those little cooling stations which the laptop sits on as
my Dell would really like to get quite hot.

Just for an FYI:

I use a laptop, but attached a regular keyboard to it.  This way I can keep
my fingers going in the same direction regardless if I am at work with my
desk top or at home with my laptop.

Of course it makes your laptop, a bit less portable, because you have to
pick up the machine and the keyboard. 

Just another option, if you don't want to jump into learning new key strokes
right away.

Hi All:  I have been using JAWS since 2.0 but always on a Desk Top PC with
Microsoft operating systems.

I'm contemplating adding a laptop and just reviewed the Freedom Scientific
site for guidance without success.  Perhaps I missed some obvious resources
at the site but mostly I went around in circles.  As an aside, they hide
their pricing as good as anybody it seems.  <G>


On point, how difficult is the learning curve from PC to Laptop within
Windows based machines?

Also, does anyone operate both a Desk Top Windows PC and a Mac laptop?

If the best idea would be to stay with a Windows laptop, do I shop Cosco and
the like, Dell or what?

My needs do not stray much from using the Internet, e mail and basic word

Thanks for any help and, if this subject   can possibly be off topic, you
can send reply's direct to:




Thanks again, Mitch
