    i've noticed that the new mac pros do not have wireless internet as standard. the only way to have it is to BTO it from the website. i'm in favour of buying it from the apple store (which might not carry any BTO models in stock), so i was wondering how difficult it might be to have wireless internet installed at the store or even by myself later on. does anyone know?

    They will install it at the store for you while you wait.

    It's a pain to install yourself, and it seems rather hard to even get the correct card for the mac pro.

    I need to add it to my MP as well, but I'll just be taking it to an apple authorized repair shop to do.

    So, you could do it yourself, but it is not considered a "user" upgrade by Apple, and it is rather tricky to do on your own.

    i think there's some other wires or something that have to be connected to the right spots...
