XPS 1530 laptop and verizon

I just ordered a  laptop XPS 1530.

It has not started being built yet.

Should I have ordered a verizon wireless card installed during the build or can the "user" (myself) add it later if I find it needed.

I have a verizon cell tower within 1/4 mile of my home.

The part I am thinking of is

Dell 5720 Mini Card for Verizon Wireless Mobile Broadband Built-in for Select Dell Inspiron / Studio / XPS / Studio XPS / Latitude / Precision / Vostro Systems

You can install it yourself easily. I screw and cover comes off bottom.  That spot can hold a wi-fi card or card in question. Also it looks like wireless card may be available as an expresscard that will pop into the side of laptop.  Owners manual is available on Dell site under support. You could maybe still change order.

Thanks a million!

That answers my question.

I believe I will wait and see how the home networking performs before I buy and install that card.

I just got XPS-M1530 and will be setting up wired desktop and wireless laptop to Linksys  WRT160N tomorrow . I hope I have better luck than some.
