You can use a USB Wireless adapter, but make sure it's Mac compatible, before you buy it. It will definitely need to have Mac-specific drivers.

Also note that a built-in wireless card is usually preferable to a PC Card or USB adapter, because the antennas are larger and therefore more sensitive (better range, faster in some cases).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
