    I would like to know what is the chipset of the wifi card in the new MBPs. Is in and Atheros ? What connection interface does it have miniPCI ?

    I can't find any detailed data sheet about he hardware configuration. On the Apple store site they show only a brief description without giving any detailed hardware information.



    thanks.
    Regards,

    Thanks,
    but this actually doesn't tell me which chipset the AirPort Extreme is based on.

    It seems that it is broadcom based though

    Thanks,

    Latest MBPs (i think 3,1 and 4,1) use Broadcom chipset, older versions use Atheros.
