    i just got my new macbook 2 hours ago. i came home to set it up and there was no "antenna" or "signal strength" icon on the top right in the menu bar. I went to system profiler and clicked on airport, and it said "no information available", so i assume there's not one installed. thats about my luck. ill be taking it back in the morning. in the meantime, any ideas?

    wow thats weird... i would definitely call about it first to see if its a software issue, if not then time for a replacement! if thats the case you could be the first one on this thread to get a replacement cuz of a manufacturer error!!! congrats!

    It went into hiding with the firewire port!

    Apparently not even the MacBook likes Steve's decisions. ;)

    Oh man (or woman), I feel so bad for you. I hope you get it exchanged soon!

    Bottom line is it is an obvious replacement and Apple should give you no hassle if you wish to exchange.

    me too

    Just got my 15" 2.53 Unibody MacBook Pro back from the AppleStore in London...took it in to get the known issue of the Nvidia 9600GT graphics card problems looked at...

    They replaced the logicboard. Got it home. "No AirPort Card Installed" and no Bluetooth either.

    One problem fixed (well, i hope so) and another problem appears!!

    A £1500 paperweight.

    Gotta take another trip back to the other side of the city to get it fixed tomorrow...

    And the 'Genius' bar is closed on friday because of the bloody iphone launch.

    Another feature that Apple quietly left out ;-) Who NEEDS wireless, right?
