Bluetooth or Wireless-N?

By aakash777 ·
I am going to buy a new laptop this summer for college (freshman). It seems that different companies are selling a certain config of laptop for same price with only one difference. Some include wireless-n and not bluetooth and some include bluetooth and not wireless-n. I consider myself pretty tech savvy. But as a student, I don't know what will be more useful.
It seems that wireless-N won't make a good difference to me when I use my laptop on campus because they might not have those access points.
Any Ideas?

802.11 a/b/g is all you need

wireless N is not really in much use now, but will likely grow in popularity over the next few years. Bluetooth is good for small devices, not as a full on network.
If you get a sysem, get one with Bluetooth and 802.11 a/b/g
