I buy my new Bionic will it be able to tether wireless to my laptop?
Yes, but you have to pay for the extra feature unless you root

Root method is already out. Problem is, both Wireless Tether and Barnacle have been reported as not working on the Bionic from the guys who have them already. Chances are someone will come out with a new app or figure out how to fix these two but so far no one has reported having the ability.
As far as root, one click root for droid 3 works on the Bionic.
If you want to risk it that's your choice, but please don't tell other people that they can do it without consequence.
