Yesterday I was hanging out with some friends at a local sportsbar enjoying the first day of the NCAA tournament. One of my buddies had his $480 Acer laptop and was picking up a wireless signal from the coffee shop next store to surf the net, etc. I wanted to check my email (and show off my brand new one week old MBP compared to his 'brick' of a laptop). I couldn't even pick up a weak signal or anything and it was a pretty embarrassing moment in the life of 'one of those Mac guys'. Any ideas why my reception would be so much inferior to a cheap PC?
