    yes, a firewall is necessary. Everything else is just preference. What programs do you use often? What are you using your notebook for?

    office 2003 is nice to have. if you don't have it or don't know where to get it, then open office is always a nice alternative.

    I use norton internet security 2005 on my desktop and symantec client security 10 on my laptop. I have no problems with the software and LOVE the adblocking/popup blocking.
