So i own a Dell Latitude D610, that used to belong to my dad back when he worked in Bank of America in 2003-5. My dad supposedly brought the laptop home for me to use for education (since at the time we really did not have anything else) despite the fact that (i think) you were not allowed to take company property to your house (i don't know really). Anyways couple years pass by, I haven't used the thing in a while, and i decide to use it again for the sake of nostalgia. i brought it out of the carrying bag it was stored in, and i was thinking about connecting it to the internet. \n\nI mention the idea to my dad, and he says not to (some reason he says once connected, the company can see it activated or his bank files come back to the machine or something like that) Now me, being inexperienced with Networking, didn't know if what he said was completely true, or its just an excuse to not connect it to the internet.\n\nMy question is, is what my dad said, true to what will happen to the laptop if i do end up connecting it to the internet, or does it sound like a load of baloney?
