    You can crawl back under your rock now...



    Personal attack much?

    Damn... Apple took the file down... can anyone mirror it, please?

    We'd be very grateful if someone could please take the time to upload it to a file sharing sever, perhaps?



    Thanks!

    I once had a woman when I was doing Creative work when it used to be PRO USERS (now it's all iLife) and had to show her more than 4 times how to attach a document, others didn't know the difference between a mail client (Mac Mail) or checking online let alone they if they had Charter, Earthlink ISP that they could have 10+ emails.



    Not sure why, but Mac users tend to be very non technical whereas your average 12 year old PC user can probably run circles around a Mac Genius as they, for the most part, send out the products do get fixed anyway.

    LOL.



    Just ribbing, but seriously, know one looked at it and saved it, cached it, FTP it somewhere? Geesh.



    totally agree with you there...

    PC users are more computer smart because windows is harder to work with so the user will learn how to use a computer.



    apple makes it to easy for everyone else so they don't learn and think it's smart to take their computer to a so call "Genius" that just tells them your computer needs to get fixed, pay this amount.

    If this is true, then there are some ideas that need to be discussed.



    Why would Apple move back to a removable WiFi card when WiFi has become a necessary staple of all notebook computers?



    Could this mean that Apple will be supporting UMTS(HSDPA/HSUPA) for T-Mobile/AT&T or CDMA2000 for Sprint/Verizon but the purchase and installation of mobile cellular data based on individual needs?

    Nice catch. You just blew my mind. ... Even in a still-developing country like Malaysia, I can get HSDPA 2.0Mbit/sec when I tether through my iPhone 3G. A built in 3G thingy into the MacBook, just whack in a 3G card, will be big GLOBALLY. Not saying it's going to be there straight away, but if the architecture is geared for better cellular/GSM/3G/4G/whatever integration, going into 2009, might be interesting...

    If the Macbooks use an Nvidia chipset, it IS an Nvidia based platform. The most important parts of the computer are supplied by Nvidia. Compared to the chipset, the processor plays only a small part in total reliability and performance of the computer.



    At the end of the day, it's a huge marketing win for Nvidia. General terminology practice means that most people will refer to it as "Nvidia-platform" Macs. Intel must not be impressed with Apple right now. There should be an AppleInsider article: "Where did Intel go wrong?" or something suitably sensationalist touting Nvidia will soon make their own CPUs or something.

    Apple comes out with new machines every 12 to 18 months, what's the big deal here? I just don't get it.

    Apple's histrory shwos that they come out with new machines almost twice a year.

    I'm aware of that. However the card's location imposes practical limits on antenna routing.

    I don't think that's what this is suggesting anyway, though.



    The instruction isn't suggesting anything, it's clearly telling the tech to install the card in the display. This is reconfirmed when it says that "The display assembly does not come with the AirPort card installed."
