My coworkers use the 3G/EVDO Verizon ExpressCard one, no problems.

Yes, I've used a Huawei model on the MBA once. Was a bit tricky, because the included software was PPC only (this dongle was years old), and you needed that to input the SIM PIN, but I worked around it by disabling the PIN and then using the built-in software to dial.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Thanks. I've been trying to get a Huawei E1752Cu working under Lion. I had to download the drivers from UK network Three and had it working, but someone messed with the settings. I put them all back as before but now it won't connect at all. It fails at the authentication stage. This is on the O2 network in the UK.

I think I might give up and buy a MiFi.
