i have read all posting about wireless connection,but i didnt really get it...

i have a Arduino Uno that has 6 sensors, and it sends out some numbers to my laptop through USB.
i dont send any data to my arduino, so it is just a pretty simple circuit.
but now i want to make it work wirelessly.

the distance between my arduino and my laptop will be around 50 feet.
i want to minimize latency as well.
im using a Macbook.

i found xbee, sd shield, wifi.. etc. i couldnt decide which one works best for my project.

please help!

thanks!!

Personally I would use Xbee. 

Using Xbees is as simple as calling Serial.println().  If you are already sending data via USB I assume you are just making the same calls.
