What are the essentials for remote computing?

What tech specs are most essential for working remotely via Citrix? Longtime Mac user here, have never bought a Windows machine. I need to buy a laptop to work remotely for my job (paralegal at a mid-size law firm). I will be logged into my Firm's network, and running a variety of software programs off Citrix (iManage Desksite, Filesurf, Word, Hotdocs template manager, Adobe Professional, etc). What key features should I be looking for? Is 8GB of RAM enough? Recommendations for specific brand names are also welcome.

Best way to install a blacklist on a Mac computer?

My dad's computer was (mildly) compromised a few months ago - he visited "one of those sites" and ended up clicking "ok" to the dialog boxes and installing an unwanted (and very hard to get rid of) toolbar, which also changed his search engine and home page. This happened TWICE, just a few weeks apart. I've since installed a browser add-on that will prevent that particular type of mischief from happening again. But... [more inside]

Help with Laptop keyboard

My wife's laptop keyboard is messed up. Whenever she hits "b" it spits out 4b, whenever she hits "n" it spits out 7n. The space bar doesn't work. This is a Lenovo laptop. She did just clean the keypad and she used a damp paper towel, but she didn't seem to spill any liquids into the keyboard. Is this salvageable? Solutions, ideas, help?

Desperately seeking adapter

I'm visiting MacMinnville, Oregon from the East Coast. When I arrived at my motel I found that my adapter for my Dell Vostro 1520 laptop no longer works. Is there anyone out there who could direct me to a retail outlet near here, perhaps in Portland or Salem, where I could buy a replacement? Since I only have about an hour of battery time left, I'm somewhat desperate. Thanks.

Computer, Y U NO connect to the Internet??

Is there a somewhat simple solution to this problem? We recently installed new wireless Internet at home but my laptop (older Toshiba Satellite) refuses to connect to the net. It will automatically find our network and connect to it, but doesn't go that step further to actually connect to the Internet. This only happens with the wireless at home - it works fine with other networks I've tried out. Is my computer just not recognizing the new modem?
