Shure SM57 to Computer

    Hello Head-Fi,
    Recently I purchased a Shure SM57 microphone from amazon...still on its way... anyways, I am really new to microphones and how they work.  The biggest problem I think I am going to have is connecting this mic to my laptop.  The Shure uses an XLR cable and my laptop obviously doesn't have an XLR input.  Should I just buy a XLR to 1/8 inch adapter?  Or should I go and buy a pre-amp for my microphone?  Or...make your own suggestions. 
    Thanks in advance,
