    I upgraded a couple of weeks ago from a penryn macbook to the new macbook pro, with my old macbook i would get full airport strength from my room. Since i got the macbook pro i'm lucky is i get 2 bars it usually sits on 1. Anyone know why this may be?

    If it was the MacBook that you previously had, it got better reception because the case was plastic. The new MacBook Pros and MacBooks are made from aluminum which reaps havoc on the wifi signal.
