Hi, I just purchased the 13 Air few days ago. I noticed when choosing which drive to choose at beginning (OSX or Win7), under the 2 drives is a list of available Wifi's.

What's the point of that?

Thanks in advance.

I believe this is to allow you to start your computer from a Mac OS X install disc on a remote computer. You will need to connect to your wireless network to see the available discs.

I think this feature was more useful for original MacBook Air and/or for installing Snow Leopard. Since the new MBAs come with a USB drive, and Lion is expected (or at least rumored) to be distributed as an App Store download, you probably won't need to use it at all.
