Just got back from vacation so haven't posted in a while.
You don't have to use the Airport card although it is recommended.
They have a USB wifi card. Apple is the only company that has an internal wifi card so that nothing is sticking out for apples as of now to my knowledge.
Whether to choose B or G depends on what router you will be using.
G has speeds of 54 mbps at a range of 50 ft and than it goes to the 11mbps for 100 ft range
B has 11 mbps for the whole 150 ft range.
So unless you will be close to the access point or router G is not too important
