Does the AirPort Extreme Work Everywhere?

I'm thinking of buying the AirPort Extreme but I am just wondering after I install it to my computer, that wherever I take it, will it give my computer access to the internet or does it only work when there is a cable connecting it to somewhere? And if it helps I have the Newest Macbook Pro. Thank You for your Help! :)

    The Extreme works by providing a wireless network anywhere there is an electrical connection (there is no internal battery), but provides no internet access at all - you must already have internet access, which is typically connected to the Extreme with Ethernet cable. I've never heard of anyone regarding it as being portable, although it can be easily moved and relocated.
