Is there a difference between a laptop and a notebook computer or are they the same thing? I know that's a silly question, but I really don't know lol. I'm using my sister-in-law's laptop right now, she got the same kind that we have so it's nice to use one I'm familiar with. Plus it's in the guest bedroom where we stay so it's easy for me to have access to it lol. One of these days I think they are planning to get high-speed internet hooked up, when it's finally available out here, and that will be awesome.
