Default Question about Wireless notebook NICs

I'm about to purchase a wireless A/B/G NIC for my notebook, but i can't decide whether to buy a PC card, USB NIC or Mini PCI card. I have a Dell Latitude 100L with an open slots for each of the above, I've just heard a lot about reception/reliability being a difference between each of the different cards, I just can't find many reviews on Mini PCI cards.

Any opinions/experiences with any notebook wireless NICs?

As far as reception/reliability is concerned, go with a PC Card.

A buddy of mine recommends the PC card. I say go with that or even the mini PCI card, I don't like USB.

I figured PC cards might be the best bet, I just hate having to plug/unplug cards all of the time. I was considering the Mini PCI card, however I can imagine that having it built right next to all of the electronic components you'd get a ton of interference.

Any suggestions on specific cards?
