In addition to all the other posts and suggestions, definitely get the 'better made' serial port internal adapter, if you intend to use a newton keyboard or other Ndevices that require a serial connection.

Since you're using a MacBook, ethernet card cable connection will be much faster than serial.  Only drawback is having one PC card slot left for either a large memory card or wifi card.
