I am trying to decide whether to update my XP notebook to Win 7 or just buy a refurbished Win 7 machine. I am not interested in a Win 8 machine.
The issue is that I have to use dial-up for over 90% of my internet use.
My current notebook has a built-in RJ-11 modem which works well for me. Any newer machine would probably require using a usb RJ-11 to connect.
I don't want to spend too much for one (usb modem) so I'm wondering about the quality of the average run-of-the-mill usb models. It seems that they might not work as well as the older built-ins.
Anyone have any experience using these to connect for significant amounts of time? It would be used on a Win 7 notebook.
