Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) follow the research 802.11(tm) family of standards. WLANs come in three flavors; 802.11b/g in the 2.4 GHz license-free band and 802.11a in the 5 GHz license-free band. The Wi-Fi Alliance is a global, non-profit industry association of more than 200 member companies devoted to promoting the growth of wireless WLANs.

    well yeah 3g means you get internet were ever you get a singal wifi you have to be somewhere and be on someones wireless internet network. 3g is prolly better if your traveling but to be honest, the i pad is basically and over sized iphone that is pretty inconvenient to carry around. my suggestion is a mac book. its more expensive but you get a bunch of other stuff. + the ipad is kinda big to carry around but i guess if you do traveling and get 3g thatd be nice. But im just letting you now that the macbook would prolly be a better choice if you ave write stuff for your work
