Laptop questions about going to Scotland

A client of mine is thinking of taking an extended trip to Scotland.  I'm advising her on a laptop to buy.  I think a lightweight Dell latitude D420  would be good.  I just want to make doubly sure that the existing power supply would work, only adding a plug adapter.  Here are the specs of the three possible power supplies:

                      65 watt Adapter        90 watt Adapter             Slim Auto/Air/AC
                                                                                                Power Adapter (65 watt)

Input Voltage     90-135 VAC /           VAC90-135 VAC /        VAC100-240 VAC @ 50/60 Hz;
                           164-265                      164-265                         DC: 11-16 VDC, 8 A

Additional cost:    none                         $19                                $69

She is not rich by any means.  If all three work, is there any reason to spend the additional $19 or $69?

Then theres the choice of wi-fi cards.  On this model she can get an a/g dual band card for an additional $19.   Theres no N option.  Is this worth $19 more?

Final question, does anyone know if fast Internet is generally available in Scotland?

Thanks,
Al

Scotland is on 230 V, 50 Hz. The power adapter must be able to handle that.
