WiMAX One of the standards used by cell phone service providers that they call "4G". Based on the IEEE 802.16e wireless standard, mobile WiMAX is a wireless broadband Internet connection like Wi-Fi, with comparable data speeds. But its range is much greater, measured in miles rather than feet, which in theory should provide continuous broadband coverage over greater distances. If supported you usually have to sign up with a service provider and pay an extra fee.

Company Issue so therefore I am stuck with a computer that is slower and more challenged to handle everyday business applications than my kid's 3.5yr old toshiba. That one came with 4gig, almost 4 years ago! These new operating systems are memory hogs. If you are like me and run multiple windows/apps at the same time using split screens, etc... Buy the big brother of this one. $50-90 more and it has an i5 processor, 500G Drive, and 4 gig ramm. If you are stuck (like me) pull out the credit card and buy two 4 gig RAMM panels for $50. It will save you in therapy bills later...
