    Hi guys, just wondering,

    Is it possible to upgrade the wireless chip in the MBA to an Intrl Wifi link 5350?

    The only non-integrated part in a MBA - as far as I know - is the SSD. Nothing else is replaceable.

    While the Airport module (WiFi+BT) is replaceable (ifixit.com), I doubt you'll be able to upgrade it (form factor, drivers). Also keep in mind that the intel card seems to lack bluetooth.
