Hi,

I have the need of a laptop for 24 hours next week. Needs to have M/S Office 2007 or recent copy of Open office and ideally vodem (E220) software loaded (or allow me to install drivers for the day). 

So was wondering if anyone has a recommendation of a laptop hire company in Wellington at all?

Thanks

a bit unethical, but find a store that has a 7 day right of return 'no questions asked', buy a laptop from them then take it back when you are finished with it.

Well was hoping for some first hand experience of a hire company if possible. Otherwise I'll just work my way through the search results

Thanks

I asked a company once, one I found randomly from google, but they were horrendously expensive.

I've used these guys a few times, and found them to go the distance to get you what you need.
