Just got a new 1.83 Mini today, seems like these ones come with somewhat uglier (but probably more sensitive) antennas. Hopefully they will use better antennas in the other aluminium clad machines (like the MBP) when the time comes for them to be speed bumped :)

Urgh, I just closed it up.

The new antennas are "Tyco" brand, not sure if it means anything to people who are familar with these components :cool:

nice to know.. I ordered a mini myself on Friday. My first Mac :)

I suppose these fix the previous airport problems I read some people complaining about

You need to be giving us a review of that new 1.83 Mini. We would like to hear more, your specs, thoughts etc.
