    Hi all,

    I have an iMac Core Duo, it has 802.11g.

    I am wondering, if it turns out that iTV works better better with 802.11n, how likely is it that Apple will provide me the ability to upgrade my iMac to 802.11n?

    Just wondering, thanks.

    The Airport is one of the easier components yo upgrade in the iMac. Still it's a hassle to open it up.

    I think the iMac Core 2 Duo shipped with 802.11n capable, but the original iMac Core Duo (which I have) is just 802.11g. If so, I'd need a hardware upgrade, correct?

    ooops, i didn't noticed you have the first version of iMac...
    btw i think 54Mbit should be enough to broadcast video to the iTV (which will be obviously retro-compatible with 802.11g)

    we have to wait until 2007 and look what apple has reserved for us...

    bye

    What about the MBPs? How easy is it to upgrade the MBP?
