Do I want the free wireless card or the extra battery?

http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs

How long do those dell batteries typically last?

I am getting one of the first three for christmas and I sure don't want the printer.

So Wireless card or battery?

I figure if I get the battery I can buy a better wireless card....

Re: Do I want the free wireless card or the extra battery?

i say battery too. when i had my dell laptop till my parents drowned the damn thing, the battery lasted a good bit. id say a movie and a half or so, but still less to worry about. plus if you buy a decent laptop it will already have a wireless network in it

I've got the 700m, with the extended life battery and integrated wireless. I get 3-4 hours of battery life. Mine is definitely not a desktop replacement unit, though.

good choice on the battery.

mine lasted around 2-3 hours with music playing and the screen shut. many a time it died and i was still in the middle of working and without music.

I agree on the battery. You can find external Pre-N cards for the same price as you would have gotten it from Dell. Plus more range and faster too. :thumbs2:

I know and I will probably upgrade later if this one doesnt cut it... but as long as I can go outside with it I will be happy
