Description:: The AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, the Apple TV and Time Capsule may take on even more importance for Apple in the days ahead, especially if Apple continues its expansion into the living room and beyond with devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV and, yes, the MacBook Air. Networking connections are set to go from a luxury to a “must-have.”

agreed.... although I'm still waiting for the majority of laptops to be able to get internet from anywhere in the US for a cheap price.... that, plus remote login etc would result in a computer zen... anyone agree?

The only thing that is keeping me from buying a MacBook Air is not having WWAN built in; Having to drag around a external USB EVDO/EDGE adapter is a pain.

Internet connectivity has to be everywhere, I can't spend my whole day using the wi-fi at Starbucks.

So I had to buy the new 2.6G MacBook Pro (Sweet) and use my Express 34 AT&T card.

I am sure once the 3G iPhones come out, Apple will start to release MBA's and MP with 3G built-in.

As far as free.. You get what you pay for, I am happy paying for WWAN service, just want it seamlessly built into my machines.
