Ok my buddy gave his r50e after he unlocked the bios since he had no use for it. After wiping it cleaning and upgrading the ram and processor, I decided to get back to penetration. I had played with backtrack before but never too much in depth. So now that I've set the stage here's my only concern: what would be best for pentesting? A wifi USB or a PCMCIA card? If it's a USB I can refer to the previous forum to find a good one. But I would first prefer a reason as which is better. Thanks guys.
