...I also want to do everything wireless and have everything tethered to my computer and the built in skyport I have heard many great things about it.
Okay, so I decided to go with the Elinchrom BXRI 500 lights.
With the BXri, you do not have tethered computer control.

Karim, if computer control of Elinchrom lights is still important to you, you need to get Elinchrom units with an "RX" designation.
The BXRI 500 will allow triggering and remote output control with an Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter, either handheld or hot shoe-mounted, but not with the USB or WiFi Skyport controllers, and you will not have all the functions that RX-series units would, such as flash counter, strobing, etc.
If full remote control isn't required, then I think you'll be happy with BXRIs. Just being able to adjust the power level up and down from the camera position is more than enough for most people, and these will do that just fine.
