The Dell Latitudes have a 3G capability - order it as an option.
The machines are well built and you can spec what you want. They may not be the cheapest but have 3 year warranty on hardware with UK technical support and a full UK based software support service - ideal for the MiL as she calls them not you.
Try looking at some of their others too, they might have 3G capability.
