I am taking a laptop to Europe for the first time--what is necessary for me to bring along to insure a quick, safe connection? Any other hints about bringing laptops to Europe; is it worth the trouble? What are the typical charges at hotels for connecting to internet in your room? I will be in Spain.
All you should need is an adapter for the European sockets. Just make sure your laptop is dual voltage, which it probably is and you should be fine.
I think we saw Internet charges of about 12,50 Euro per day while we were in Spain. Sometimes it is cheaper if you use a wireless connection in the hotel lobby.
Hope this helps, enjoy your trip
