Bringing a "Laptop" to the ABV.

I understand there is Wireless Internet Service at the ABV, My question is: Has anyone brought a Laptop to the ABV and had any problems using it and do they think it is worth bringing. Will it be safe being kept in the Room?

Thanks in Advance, Gary.

I took my laptop last December and will be taking it again this December! There was free wi-fi in the main reception area, in The Horizons lounge area and outside in the courtyard by Tommy's Bar/Enids Restaurant.

The wi fi was fast and reliable.

There is a business centre but it was quite expensive to use which is why I took my laptop instead.

Hi Gary,

Did you get internet access at ABV? If so, how much did it cost? We are going in a few weeks and unfortunately have to log in for school work.

If you take your own laptop wi-fi is free. When we went in December 2009 there was a good, fast, reliable connection in the main reception area and in the courtyard outside Tommy's Bar. In the Horizons Lounge there is internet acces. There are also desks and power points, too, along with tea, coffee and a nearby bar.

The business centre has computers and internet access but the charge was, from memory, around $10 US for 30 minutes so taking a laptop is by far your best option.

When using mine with mains electricity I always use a surge protector to plug into, just in case!

Enjoy you're trip. We're going again in December, along with the laptop!
