.bins take up no room. Romeditors don't interfere with each other. Norton Antivirus and spy sweeper are your friend.

you won't need much space for storage if you are just using it for tuning. Make sure you have some way to get online, wireless is best IMO

Wireless network cards automatically search for the closest signal. Unless whoever's running the network has it passworded, you can just steal signal.

yep. its prety badass. I've had to do it a couple times. It's almost teh same principle as having wireless at your house and taking the laptop outside while you work on your car incase you need to do some googling on something.

Some people password protect their networks, but its usually pretty easy to get a hold of a network.

if you have to upgrade to it, the only difference is that you will have a card sticking out of your lapto with an antenna possibly. but if your laptop is made with the card, then it isnt visible.
