Yes indeed you can do it. So before purchasing your laptop for Christmas, you should ensure that it has a PC card or so called pcmia slot so that the card can be inserted in the laptop, you can hence use your cell phone (yes this is not a joke) to be able to get the connection anywhere. The cell phone should somehow have a data port and you will also need to purchase a special device that will allow connection between your cell phone and your laptop. You should somehow know that the connection will alter depending on the places where you are as well as the signal that you will have through the cell phone.

You can also use a Bluetooth device that will help you get a wireless connection where hotspots are available. You can ask the manufacturer (or retailer) or your laptop if it is provided with an integrated Bluetooth system. Else, you can use a wireless usb hub that will help you to connect to the wireless connection available. Hop I have helped you somehow.
