Hi Admiral Beotch,
Thanks for your fast reply - the more important question of the two was regarding the internet access, so I'm pleased this won't be a problem.
Regarding the program she'll be using, I'm a bit confused, she has a standard aol account and that's what she would like to be able to log into. If I open her a Gmail account would we be able to use that to access her aol email from the laptop?
I'm terribly sorry, these must seem like silly questions really
