I am thinking about buying a centrino laptop. If I did get one, what extra equipment would I need to network it (wirelessly) with my PC and share the broadband connection?

I have done exactly this recently - you have 2 options (I have tried both):

If you have only the 2 machines then you can simply buy a wireless network card for the desktop machine and share the broadband connection through that machine - this does have the disadvantage that the desktop must be turned on the use the internet on the laptop.

Alternatively you could buy a wireless router. You can then plug the broadband modem into the router and connect the desktop to the router via an ethernet cable (this assumes you have a standard network card in your desktop) and the laptop will connect via the wireless link.

I'll look into this.
