Question wifi card for Lenovo ThinkPad T60

Hello all

i need some help ... to buy a wifi card
i have on this notebook an intel based chipset wifi card, but i want to buy another card which has monitoring/managed mode and is supported by airodump-ng and aircrack ...

i have a budged of 70$ for this card
i was thinking to buy a USB wifi card, cause it is a work/office laptop from my company
i dont know if i could buy another type of card on another interface such as PCMCIA/Express Card, i never used those interfaces but as i know and you can see from the image
it has such slot

which card would you recommend me to buy in this budget limit?

PS: i was thinking at Linksys WPC55AG v1.3

I'd get the Linksys WUSB600N. You can use it on any comp.
