13" Macbook Pro wifi reception?

Hello all.

I hope this is not a stupid question, but I trust many of you more then a salesperson.

I currently own a 12" G4 Powerbook which I really like, but it is getting a bit long in the tooth, so I am considering buying a new 13" Macbook Pro.



My one question is this. Will the new 13" MBP have better wifi reception then my current 12" powerbook? I ask because my 12"powerbook's weakness seems to be poor wifi reception. I'm told this is no secret.



I recently have been put in a situation where better wifi reception is a must. It is the main reason I'd be upgrading. Will I notice better reception? Do I need to consider a 15" to get better wifi?



Thank you in advance for your help.

    I would hazard a random guess and say yes. After the years in between one would assume (possibly wrongly) that Apple has paid attention to this, and learned some lessons. We won't know for definitely until tests are done.

    My MacBook Aluminium 13" 2.0ghz has decent WiFi. Not as good as the plastic MacBooks which have really quite impressive wireless reception.



    Overall, I think there will be a reasonable improvement over your 12" PowerBook.



    Honestly, I think it is quite unlikely there will be a distinct problem with WiFi and your MacBook Pro 13".
