It depends from person to person, but everything can be accomplished now with a usb flash drive so it's kind of making cd's obsolete. Car radios have USB ports and auxiliary ports so people can plug their ipods, iphones, smart phones, usb drives, etc. to listen to music.
Even installing operating systems can be done easily through the usb interface (and it installs much faster too). Drivers, software, various programs, etc. can all be downloaded from the manufacturers on their respective websites. So yeah, in a sense, they can be "not needed".
As for getting wifi on this bad boy, yes you'll need a wireless adapter to get wifi signals. If you list what your wireless router is, I or someone else would be able to give you a recommendation on one.
