I might get one of these long range dongle+antennae's. It would be overboard for a wifi cafe or an office

I thought exactly the same thing...then looking around, I found that the external USB adapter was much more expensive than just replacing the internal one with the 1520, so I did that for $14 and have no dongle sticking out the side of the netbook.
