Well, I've now settled on exactly what laptop I want to buy, but now I have an interesting question:
Which type of wireless card should I go with? Internal (MiniPCI), or external (PCMCIA). On the particular machine I'm getting, I can get an internal 802.11b solution, or an external 802.11g (good for when I eventually decide to upgrade my wireless router).
I've yet to find a good place here in Canada that sells MiniPCI cards, so I'm leaning towards a PC Card. What I'd like to know is this:
1) Do PC Cards use a lot more power than a MiniPCI card?
2) Do you get better range out of a PC Card, or an internal solution?
3) What brands would you recommend for an external card -- if that's the route I should go?
