The answer to that depends on what internet facilities you already have.

If you have an ADSL broadband connection already then installing a wireless router will let you connect the laptop using either WiFi or an ethernet cable.

If you use a USB Modem, this could be installed in the new computer and the connection swapped over, although there could be a problem getting drivers if it is running Vista.

Another option is to network the laptop with your existing PC and set up Internet Connection Sharing on the existing modem connection in the PC.

Anyway, yes it depends whether you want broadband or dial up and whether you want unlimited bandwidth or not.
