    PC/modem question

    So I am helping some folks to buy a laptop for a guy in Guatemala. Communications with him are a bit sketchy, but I have figured out that they don't really have phone lines and so they use a modem that works off of a cellular network or maybe satellite. Tigo is probably the most common company, and you can buy a Tigo usb modem there pretty inexpensively. The problem is, on the Tigo website it doesn't seem to indicate whether it will work with Windows 7. And it seems hard to find new laptops that do not come with Windows 7. I would get him a Mac if he lived at all close to me and/or spoke English so I could help him as needed (and also if they had a little more money to spend). I have emailed Tigo to ask them about this specifically, but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Does anyone have any helpful information?

    TIA.

    Never mind. Found another site, in Spanish, that led me to a manufacturer's site, and they do seem to work with Windows 7, too....
