I need a little help since I can not make heads or tails from all the mumbo jumbo in the product description. My laptop is dead and I need a new one. I went to Best Buy and found one I liked. However, it was out of stock. Well, I am just going to order it on-line, but I need to know if I need anything to connect to a wireless internet connection. My old laptop is slow and I never bothered to take it anywhere and just used a regular connection. I have a Macbook through work for work-related stuff and I do not need a wireless card for it, since it is built in. So, will I need to buy a card for this one or not? I am going on vacation in a couple weeks and I need to know so I can connect to the hotel's internet. Thanks!!

Oh- here is the laptop I liked:
HP - Laptop with Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor T4200 - G60-235DX (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9167947&type=product&id=12180419 98788 - broken link)

The 802.11b/g wireless listed in the specs will work just fine.
