    The Acer Aspire seems to be just what I need for use both at home and when travelling, however both at home and at my usual venue in France only dialup internet connection is available. Is this an going to be an major problem?
    Thanking you in anticipation.

    That depends on whether you have a modem with an USB connection, or a modem and a serial-to-USB-cable.
    If you have such a modem, then it won't be a major problem. If you don't have such a modem, then it will.
    There's no built in modem in the Aspire One.

    It was probably more than likely some sort of usb modem such as this

    you could probably find cheaper ones im sure.

    Although if you get good 3g or hsdpa mobile phone signal around your house/work/wherever then you will more than likely be better off paying for a usb 3g modem internet rather than really dated and slow dial~up internet. Assuming that you are unable to get home DSL or Fibre Optic broadband instead.

    Maybe sign up for a Mobile Internet account and you get a USB Dongle. You can then log on from virtually anywhere with download speeds commonly around 3 Mbps. These accounts are getting cheaper.
