I know we will all regret this...haha

Well, I know that new, the lower end machines are about $1,000.00 (USD  
of course...). and as far as internet goes, it is WI-FI compatible, so  
if you are in a Wi-Fi area, you should automatically get internet. Just  
turn the machine on and you should pull an IP address. I know there are  
zones in  California, I think in the Bay area, that consist of entire  
neighborhoods that have a Wi-Fi connection, but check locally.  
Otherwise, I think a wireless connection will cost you some money per  
month. Around $30.00 - $50.00 a month in the states...so should be  
about the same amount in the UK. Still, not a bad deal at all. I am  
thinking of doing this as well. Linux does work on these machines too.
