    I noticed in teardown pictures the airport card is no where to be found. Is it true its actually hidden in the display assembly along with the antennas, or is it built into the logic board? Just wondering. This question is for BOTh the 13" Aluminum Unibody late 2008 MacBook, and the April 2010 MacBook Pro 13".

    Thanks for the replies.

    Underneath the clutch cover. You'll find the Airport antenna module and the Airport card is mounted adjacent to it. Be careful of the thermal transfer pad attached to the Airport card about it's centre.

    See here: right hand side, next to the thumb, the blue circuit board. You can see the two cables attached.
