Relative is in and out of hospital so needing a computer they can use for various things.

Don't really want to have to deal with the hassle of a wifi hot spot etc so a inbuilt lte would be good.

Not seeing a lot looking around the place. Budget is up to about 1400 or so. Slim and light is a priority. Also windows 7 would be better due to familiarity.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon or Carbon Touch selected models have built-in 3G, and is also lightweight. Not sure about the price though..

Best bet is to get a 3G dongle to open up more laptop options. Cheap as chips. Once set up, it's pretty easy vs trying to find wifi hot spots.

Dongle is one more thing to forget or lose or break so would rather not.

Can you buy lenovo at a shop at all?

Actually, just seen the price on that lenovo, thats gonna be too much I think. There are some HP Probooks that list 3G on peicespy that are near the target price range. Want to get a good one since it will become mine soon anyway.
