Nice of Apple to let us know ahead of time that the Mac Mini does not take a normal airport card but rather a mezzanine card that NONE of the stores have gotten in yet.

I suppose that's one way of looking at it. LOL


Then again that little blurb would lead me or anyone else I know to assume it takes a normal APExtreme card like the rest of the product line.

it does say AirPort Extreme Card, but it also says that it is not user-installable, and that an authorized installation has to be done, so it is no surprise that you cannot get the card right now

Still it is misleading. Not to mention annoying for those of us that don't care to pay 50 bucks to do a simple install. Though apparently even genii at Apple stores can't do it as of yet.

Just got an airport extreme Card in my Mac mini although I did already have the Mezzaine card already as I had the Bluetooth Module as a Custom Build.
Works like a Charm (gets a better signal than my eMac.)
Also runs so sweet with 1GB of RAM

I'm starting to wish I had direct ordered mine... but I've had so much trouble with BTOs in the past.
