    - How many wifi antennas do the new Macbook have?

    - Is the wifi card replaceable if it breaks, or if a new standard comes out?

    The Unibody MacBook Pro has the airport card built into the display case:

    Since both the MacBook and Pro share other similar designs, it's a pretty safe guess to say that it's also in the display for the MacBook.

    I haven't read anything about how many antennas it has.

    As for replacing it if it breaks, that's something that Apple can do if it's still under warranty (AppleCare is strongly recommended). It seems like upgrading the airport card yourself is possible, but that would require removing the display first to reach the card.
