i dont know much about computers. so hopefully one of you can help me.

i plan to buy a laptop with built-in wireless. the thing that i need to know is when i travel to different places with it what would i have to do to connect it to the internet.

You would need to connect to a public wireless access point. Or you could you blue tooth and coonect through your mobile phone

Before you travel somewhere you can usually find good information about access points there. I know in the US that some companies offer subscriptions to their "national" network... coverage is not the best though.

If your laptop/wifi card does not have software to find access points, you can download some free software that will find access points from the AT&T Wireless web site [wifistore.qpass.com] (now Cingular). It works with finding any access points, not just AT&T/Cingular access points.
