Default Express Card and Internet question.

Well my first question is see im getting a new laptop computer in a couple of weeks and I saw on the Dell website that it has an Express Card slot on it. Whats an Express Card slot?

My other question is Can I when ever I want to use the internet just plug it into my computer then I can go? Can I also do that with the printer just plug it in and print it when I want to print something? Of course after I set it up on my computer im asking.

the laptop should have a wireless card in it already for connecting to the internet....to connect the printer wirelessly, use a bluetooth adapter....http://www.bluetooth.com/Bluetooth/C...ome/Scenarios/

here is a bluetooth adapter you could hook up to a USB printer http://www.bizrate.com/marketplace/s...-11665397.html

did you get your laptop with bluetooth on it already? if not, just use one of these....http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProdu...duct_Id=196912
