Default Fast powerful VST music production laptop with no wireless internet parts?

I want a fast powerful laptop or net book that has no internal wireless parts so it canít be remotely activated/hacked. Even if I donít pay for internet service, internal wireless parts can be remotely activated. Iím guessing most laptops/net books from 2004ish and newer have internal wireless internet parts, so I need something older, but it must be fast and powerful to smoothly play full 1080 HD videos and mostly to run a bunch of high end CPU-sucking music production software VST synthesizers, effects, plus a host music sequencing program like Fruity Loops or Cubase. It must have an internet connection so I can install updates etc when I first start/after a reformat and then Iíll unplug it. If I want to transfer something to my internet computer, Iíll burn a cd/dvd. If I want to sample something from youtube or something, Iíll record it through the headphones.

Max price is $500 used, but hope thereís something around $250. Iíll spend more if I must. If thereís nothing powerful enough, Iíll take suggestions for regular laptops/notebooks and not pay for internet and thatís the best I can do. No Macs.

Thank you.

You uh... you're a paranoid person if you believe that the possibilities of someone remotely activating your system are even remotely possible. Unless you're a spy for a nation that is in these kinds of situations, you wouldn't be getting a $500 laptop recommendation here.

$250 is too little for what you're asking, and $500 is pushing it as well.

Your best bet is somewhere starting around here:
Newegg.com - ASUS A53E-EH31 Notebook Intel Core i3 2310M(2.10GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 500GB HDD 5400rpm DL DVDĪRW/CD-RW Intel HD Graphics

As for used, get on Ebay, get the most you can afford from a reputable reseller
