I was wondering if it was possible to download the entirety of wikipedia, so I can browse it on a laptop when I don't have an internet connection.

Yea there are many web page downloaders as long as you have the time you could grab it all. Unfourtanly I can't give you names but I suggest you google for web page downloaders or somthing along those lines.

That depends on what you are getting. If you get all of the picturs it's huge but the text may only be a few dozen MB's.

I agree with what he said.

Wikipedia is not accurate, always. So you are better off getting something that has more credibility, where the employees actually do fact checking.
