I would like to buy a Thinkpad, and I am trying to choose the right configuration. One of the options that I have is to choose a wireless card. The choices are:

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [subtract $34.00]
ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless LAN Mini-PCIe US/EMEA/LA/ANZ [subtract $38.25]
Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

Does anybody know what the advantages of Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN are? I do need WiFi in my laptop to connect to the wireless router at home and to different access points (e.g. in hotels) when I am on the road. Which of the above wireless cards would you recommend and is it worth paying $38 extra for Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN?

Hi there

All I can tell you about the WiFi Link card is this:
It is a quad-mode card which means it supports the 3 legacy wireless standards (i.e 802.11a/b/g) plus the next generation Draft-N standard used in "Connect with Intel Centrino" Wireless-N routers & access points.
When connected to a wireless-N router or AP, the wireless range should be better (x2) & the speed much faster (upto 300Mbps), in theory at least and according to Intel.

The other 2 cards listed don't support the wireless-n standard.
