Does anybody know if this netbook will work with a sprint air card (it is the slot type),,,I know it has a built in WAN, but since I have Sprint service with my air card, how would that work? I don't know enough by reading to understand how I would connect to the internet. Thanks

If the netbook has a slot for the card then all you would need to do is install the card software and it will work.

You could then disable the onboard WIFI card by pressing the button /switch on the laptop.
your system comes with Windows XP so make sure the software is compatible with it.

It has to be the newer PCI Express mini card though or USB stick.
I'm sure if you contact Sprint you can get a newer card or USB stick rather.
