    MacBooks have had them standard since at least the G4 models.

    If you're talking about a wifi card, then yes, mac laptops have had them for a while now.

    If you're talking about a wireless broadband card (provided by Verizon, AT&T, etc.), I know most networks have USB cards along with ExpressCard slot cards, the former should work with your macbook.

    You can get them from most wireless providers; the easiest solution would be to go to whoever your current cellphone provider is. If you sign up for a 2-year contract (which I wouldn't recommend) you can get a USB card for as cheap as $50, otherwise expect to pay a couple hundred bucks.

    Look here, lots of WWAN info... You need to make sure the EV-DO modem you buy from your Wireless service provider is activated for the first time in a Windows machine prior to use in your macbook. I believe some of them can already be activated in Leopard, but dig into the above link to find out more. I do have a Franklin Wireless CDU-680 USB modem working under Leopard with a macbook C2D 10.5.1 and is great. If you choose the CDU-680 and you are using Leopard, you will need this, go to the bottom of the page.

    Hope this helps!! :apple:
