    Huge Laptop!

    The laptop in the article on the BBC web site here BBC News - Introducing UK broadband's first customer, 10 years on looks massive! I can see it has a full size keyboard on it - what make is it?

    that cant be right surely. My mum has had broadband since 1998 with BT (and we have the bills to back it up!)....

    As for the laptop, It looks like a large toshiba...either that or they are just incredibly small.

    in was going to say hp looks a bit like mine and that has an almost fullsized keyboard and num pad but it may be a tosh judging by the silver base

    Looks like a 17" laptop and the camera angle makes it look bigger. Maybe a Studio 17.

    Yeah I thought that until I realised that the laptop is normal sized and they are just very small people.

    Looks a lot like my Tosh Satellite Pro. 17"

    Only the sound connectors are on the front of mine.

    The Bush family also chat together on social networking site Facebook when they are not in the same room.
    Is it just me, or is that kind of sad? Its a shame you can speak to your own kids when they're in the same house.

    I thought that it was available around 98-99 too in limited areas

    Maybe the first NTL/Virgin customer but certainly not the UK's first I dont reckon

    Viewsonic developed a 22" laptop, although I don't think they will ever release it

    Is it bad that I quite like the look of that?
