    my friend is maybe going to buy an ibook g4 and it seems like the guy whos selling it doesnt have a airport card inside, Since it says add a card, so since he doesnt wanna spend much more for an airport card i told him about usb wireless. So my question is does he have to get a certian usb wireless device or can he just go down to the store and get any ordinary one for pc's?

    My advice would be to shop eBay for a used airport card. It's so much nicer to have the card built-in and not have to worry about snapping off or losing a USB dongle. Installing the airport card takes about a minute, too, so that shouldn't be of any concern.
