    I might be getting a powerbook or an Ibook for xmas and I was wondering if you still have to buy the airport extreme card as I've heard that they now come built in but just wanted to make sure.
    I was also wondering if the powerbook came with the built in mic? As I know the ibook does.

    Can anyone clear this up for me? thanx :D

    They both come with Airport and Bluetooth 2. Both have built-in mic and the Powerbook has an audio-in port that allows you to plug in a real mic.

    Just double checking once again, Once im ordering my Ibook/Powerbook I will only have to order the AirPort Express Base Station and theres no need for me to buy the AirPort Extreme Card since it comes built in?

    Airport Express is GREAT! You will love it!
    Of the four people I've helped / convinced to switch - three of them HAD to buy an Airport Express. Sure there are lots of wireless routers out there... but AirTunes is just cool.

    No need to be like that mate I was only double checking like I said, I don't want to be sitting on christmas day with my laptop stuck to a desk, I would like to take advantage of the wireless option.
