Those cards that are on sale in Apple Store, when are they going Pre-N?
The built-in ones already are.
But that doesn't mean there will ever be an 'n' version for older Macs.
There won't be an N version for older Macs ever. When Apple went from b to g the new g cards were not compatible with the older Macs that were designed for the b cards.
In fact, now that all Macs I think have wireless built in already they might not even make an N version at all. At least not as a user installable part you can buy from the store.
in the mac pro you have to pay extra for the card, its not on the motherboard
I think in the not too distant future, that will no longer be the case.
At some, presumably sooner than later, Apple will no longer sell a separate wifi card as all will be built in.
it would make sense to simply sell N cards, they already build them for use in Mac Pro machines
and it would be a little unfair to shortchange us early adopters who have Core Duo machines with no N and removable Airport cards.
Plus I don't see the upgrade from B to G being the same, G to N is a HUGE leap, it's also quite future proof for the foreseeable future
as for selling machines wirelessly enabled and therefore not selling the part separately, maybe, but there will always be a market for people wanting to upgrade, and even repair, maybe they will only sell them to licensed repair places?
I guess time will tell, but here's hoping.
